More about this expert:

I am an entrepreneurial spirit specialised in international public financing, using business intelligence to shape sustainable strategies, identifying new intriguing ideas and turning them to viable business plans and proposals. I have spent more than a decade living and working abroad. During that time, I have worked with a wide array of clients ranging from SMEs and NGOs to large international organisations such as European Commission, European Parliament, European Central Bank, European Investment Bank, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, London School of Economics and NATO. Throughout my career, I have been involved in gaining international funding of over €100 million for various projects extending over six continents in the sectors of international development and research consulting. Currently, I take particular interest in the funding opportunities quickly emerging for private sector in emerging markets due to the immense need of investments to solve the issues caused by population growth. I would be pleased to participate in solving challenges in the following areas: - EU and other international financing, such as development banks and international foundations - Business case development / International tendering / Proposal writing - Project management - Multi-country market research design and management - Training.
