Today it’s time to suit up! Converse shoes and t-shirts have long replaced my formal suits. It’s been a month since I suited up. Thankfully I listened to my dad and brought a suit along. I missed the feel of this smooth and elegant fabric. However, I did not miss ironing!! In fact I seem to be out of practice. For the first time in my life I managed to burn a hole in the ironing board :D….sorry Diego (my flatmate and once proud owner of this board). Clearly ironing is not like riding a bike.
So what is the occasion? I am meeting the angel investor of a Buenos Aires based startup for which I did some financial analysis a few weeks back. I already had Skype conferences with the CEO and the head of business development for USA. This further meeting is required to establish whether there is scope for me to do some work with this ambitious startup. The startup, which for the time being will remain unanominous as requested by the CEO, operates in the advertising industry and intends to undergo a further round of fundraising to finance expansion into the North American market. Working with the startup during the fundraising would be a great utilisation of my finance and accounting background and would no doubt be a phenomenal experience.
