The concept of Startup Guide is the "Lonely Planet for entrepreneurs" and has been produced and published for nine prominent cities in Europe, including Berlin, Copenhagen, London, Lisbon, Vienna, Stockholm. It is the entrepreneurs handbook with guides, tips, insights, case-studies and interviews with local co-working spaces, accelerators, startups, founders and corporates. I joined a bootstrapped project in 2015 without a clear business model and strategy. After I joined, we were profitable after 8 months in business, and have positioned a strong brand in demand with partners and books in 10 cities and retailers world-wide. We have worked with some of the biggest corporates in the world (such as Microsoft, Accenture, E&Y and SAP), and supported startup communities and entrepreneurs all over Europe.
