Hanh enjoys combining storytelling, design, and business fundamentals to present early-stage investment opportunities in the best light. She works with founders to prepare them for the rigor of fundraising."Building a business is already hard enough. I wanted to make the fundraising part a little easier by forming an expert team dedicated to the singular goal of making the best pitch possible for each founder. In the process, I hope founders get more access to financing, increased choice in investors (or partners), and more peace of mind as a result of pitch preparedness, particularly for first-time founders, or founders for whom having more inclusiveness and support would make a difference."

He helps businesses discover their voice, tone, and purpose mainly through visual brand identity development."In brand identity work, I tend to see [young] companies skip the research and ideation phases, then expect a quick fix without going deeper. But we must go back to the basics, ‘What is our actual vision, reasons and motivation for this business?’ ‘How can we sustain our core values and reflect them in our (new) product/service?’ It’s crucial to remember that the Brand is a sum of all visual/sensory interactions and experiences between your offering and the user/customer."
