Business Economics in Startups 


I'm an economics graduate with a great work ethic and excellent interpersonal skills. I lived abroad in a very remote part of Indonesia for the first seven years of my life and then moved to USA where I grew up. I've experienced a wide range of backgrounds and that's made me appreciate and develop a deep intercultural sensitivity. People say I'm a great communicator, with superb presentation skills. I'm agile and adaptable in a changing environment. I'm able to comprehend and deliver complex information to diverse audiences. 

My business development background with RGG helped me develop skills in cultivating positive relationships with clients and colleagues. I have great organisationals skills; able to prioritise and delicate tasks, and make sound decisions quickly while maintaining a focus on the bottom line. I possess a strong background in small business development. I've worked very closely with several startups in an incubator and accelerator programs.
