  • Writing and sharing communications on behalf of the Co-Founders to many different stakeholders;
  • Planning and executing Founder events, workshops, and group activities;
  • Assist us in coordinating meetings, doing client in-take, and proof-reading documents;
  • Managing email correspondence;
  • Open matters, bill, and follow up on invoices;
