After 12 years in investment banking, I have fully embraced the challenges of founding and building new businesses, as well as helping existing businesses to grow and innovate.
During my career at ABN AMRO and ING Barings, I have advised multiple clients across a range of sectors including Technology, Media & Telecoms, Consumer & Retail, Energy, Utilities and Natural Resources. Irina has worked with company owners & C-suite management to create their investor stories and get them ready for investment. My clients were both multinationals and local enterprises based in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
I have co-founded and developed a mobile tech business based in the UK and Australia. Over the past 9 years, I have acquired a deep knowledge of the start up and scale up space and a network of partners, clients, fellow entrepreneurs and investors, as well as a strong working relationship with the UK government organisations that support SMEs.
Having added product and project development and business development skills to my portfolio, I now provide companies with both strategic advice and hands-on help in growing their business and developing an innovation engine.
