As CEO of Sian's Plan I raised over £300k investment. £100k from a VC, £75k+ from angel investors in the US, UK, Ireland and Australia, £100k by crowdfunding via Seedrs & £25k+ from the Food-X accelerator.
I've got an unusual combination of skills perfectly suited to startups and product development. I've got enough coding skills to get a beautifully designed MVP out and off the ground. I've managed products in the past for the BBC, AMEX and others.
I'm good at seeing opportunities and solutions to problems. I don't get stressed easily, and thrive when working under pressure.
A real necessity for a lot of startups. I didn't know where to start when I set out with Sian's Plan but after plenty of introductions, meetings and rejections(!) I've built a decent network.
We built a team of 7 at Sian's Plan. I have experience in hiring and all that entails.
A keen eye for detail and an understanding that design is crucial for today's consumers results in a focus on UX. I've recently started using Sketch for prototypes and am proficient in most of the Adobe Design Suite.
We developed partnerships with all the major retailers in the UK (eg. Tesco), Eumom.ie (Irelands largest parenting website) and established working relationships with The Guardian & Unilever.
Although I'm not the best coder in the world, I develop beautifully designed minimum viable products, wireframes and prototypes.
I love to work in the innovation and creative space. I don't give up easily and focus entirely on what needs to be done.
I guess I'm a bit of an amateur futurologist however I just see it as an ability to imagine what the future will hold, how things will fit in and opportunities that may arise.
My natural curiosity & engineering background has taught me that problems are always solvable. Plan B, C , D or E aren't far away.
Strategic thinking, getting things done, analysing data & making decisions, influencing others positively.
