The Case for Coaching
The startup journey can be hard and stressful! As the size of your startup increases, the size of your problems grows too. To scale your startup, you need to scale yourself.
Running a fintech startup can feel chaotic, filled with anxiety based on the lack of structure. FsPal can help you structure your thoughts and your action plans, make better decisions and communicate better.
Hi, I’m Agustin! I love helping businesses and would like to learn more about you and your challenges.
Growing up in Argentina, where the business context changed from one minute to the next, I had to learn to adapt to life and its challenges. I founded two successful dot coms which I then sold, while I studied economics in St Andrews University.
I emigrated to Europe in 2005, where I did my MBA at La Salle University, in Barcelona, and then settled in London where I qualified as a business leadership coach. I also founded FsPal.com, an award winning consulting, training and research business.
I coach several executives and entrepreneurs. I also like to participate as a mentor in fintech accelerators such as PwC fintech Scale.
I have a breadth of experience and I hope this will be useful to you.
Coaching has allowed me to expand enormously. I believe that all startups should have a mentor or a coach. Startup founders juggle so many different hats and go through a lot of stress, dealing with employees, funding issues, dealing with suppliers and clients.
As a coach, I make sure that you don’t feel all alone. I am light hearted, I listen with intent, and will probe you and challenge you. My approach is direct and powerful. I also like to bring a dose of optimism and encourage my coachees.
- I am passionate about fintech and read about it for at least an hour a day to keep up to day with the latest developments
- I care about the success of the people that I coach and like to build a strong relationship
- I have a strong focus on results, as I know that startups like to keep things short and simple
- I have an approachable nature, willing to share both successes and failures in a motivating and inspiring way.
