Ahmed in a few words
I'm Bassio, your go-to VC expert and unicorn wrangler 🦄. From marketing for giants like L'Oreal, learning design, training, and consulting, to being part of an exhilarating journey that led Careem, a unicorn startup to its successful exit to Uber - my career is a mix of exciting roles and rewarding experiences from being a hardcore entrepreneur to a VC principal.

In a career spanning over a decade, I have been instrumental in fueling growth for 100+ startups with shrewd financial modeling and innovative growth hacking strategies. I've mastered the art of crafting compelling narratives that sway investors, raised substantial funding rounds, and led successful exits.

With a deep understanding of investor psychology, I've developed the ability to transform your pitch from standard to exceptional, securing its place at the forefront of investors' minds. Be it your first dive into fundraising or you're gearing up for a follow-on round, I'm here to guide you seamlessly through the process.

My experience isn't just limited to the realm of startups. My expertise expands to venture fund research, creation, and fund management, providing me with a holistic understanding of the industry. Over the years, I've worn many leadership hats, each adding a new perspective to my approach.

My specialized areas include:

Startup Advisory
Business Strategy Formulation
Business Plan & Pitch Deck Creation
Financial Modeling & Business Valuation
DCF Modeling, IRR and Return Modeling
Financial Projections & Forecasts

🚀 Let's shift from words to action! Join me for a call to discuss your unique business needs and outline a roadmap to success. I'm eager to learn about your project and uncover ways to drive it forward!
