Everyone in Fundnel works on the same floor. It really helps that we can see each other, hurl ideas back and forth and just shoot the breeze with everyone, even our interns. The people who know us really like to work with us. We’re in the relationship business and a big part of what we do is using technology to enhance the sense of participation. Finance first and foremost is about trust.
What I've Learnt
We’re helping institutions and individuals to take a better (and closer) look at the growth potential of private businesses around the region. Being able to bring people together at a Fundnel Deal Table is what we do. I never believed in the idea of people working for me. It’s my job and responsibility to enable people to grow personally and professionally by providing guidance. If I could take a bit of time out of the day I would take the time to enjoy reading and learning about something completely esoteric just because.
