Serial entrepreneur

I landed on Sketchnote expecting the hyped-up advice on how everyone should be an entrepreneur. Instead I found a stylish, warm and fun productivity tool that helped me along my journey as an entrepreneur, with all its ups and downs. I love the colorful mentors, especially Frances, my personal favorite. I would recommend Sketchnote to any first-time entrepreneur looking to fast-track the startup learning curve.

Managing partner, Cupido Capital

Two years ago I got together with 22 entrepreneurs to launch Cupido Capital, an early-stage fund focused on pre-seed startups. At Cupido, we assign a mentor for every startup we invest in. Thanks to Sketchnote, our mentors can focus on providing sector-specific advice and help with networking. Sketchnote learning tools provide the nuts and bolts for building a startup, as well as practical templates such as NDAs, SHAs and ESOPs.

Our business school badly needed Sketchnote. It has helped us double our intake in our Rockett Labs programme for aspiring entrepreneurs among our MBA students.
