Şahver Kaya is joining the FND team as an advisor. Her speciality lies in marketing and growth, which will be invaluable as FundRequest will want to widen its unique open-source funding platform to include more developer and business-oriented services.
Kaya has over 15 years in growing B2B and B2C businesses. In addition to working with several renowned corporations like Deloitte and Siemens in management and strategic capacities, she has also launched her own startup, Olivita, which was the subject of an award-winning research paper at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
She is also a guest lecturer at the same institution, offering lectures for Entrepreneurial Product Marketing and Entrepreneurship for the Marketing Management course.
Olivita, which was sold in Q1 2015, grew to over 600 retail outlets in three years and encompassed three markets: USA, India, and Saudi Arabia. Her success with this venture resulted in her being featured in Forbes and CNBC. Since Olivita’s sale, Kaya has served as Executive Director for Entrepreneurship Ventures and as a collaborator for Artemis Connection.
Kaya’s strength lies in taking a company and finding ways to grow it quickly. Her many years of experience in advising and coaching startups will help FundRequest form a growth strategy and extend its reach in the market.
She will also advise the team on her specialities of marketing, branding, and partnerships, as well as on exit and quarterly strategies, plus the product roadmap.
A seasoned business and marketing individual like Şahver Kaya is precisely what the FundRequest project requires. The market is at a time where projects must make great efforts to reach out to the masses to make them aware of them. FundRequest has made the logical move in bringing Kaya to the team to help ensure their efforts are successful.
