Co-Founder and CEO, Grasshopper

"Entrepreneurship is the catalyst for changing the world and improving lives."

How I Want to Change the World

By empowering one million entrepreneurs around the world to succeed.


I’ve been a very lucky person in life. While some may not agree, luck plays a major role in any successful entrepreneur’s career but it is not enough by itself. It’s the ability to be aware of it and to take advantage of that luck that leads to new opportunities. The smallest, most trivial-seeming events can lead to major changes in life so entrepreneurs need to always be on the lookout.

My Personal Brand

Your personal brand is defined through actions and accomplishments, not by a definition you create yourself.

How I Define Entrepreneurship

Entrepreneurship is the catalyst for changing the world and improving lives.​​​​
