“Nicola is an amazing professional who has in-depth expertise in nurturing disruptive innovation. She supported Cleantech Bulgaria’s teams in implementing the first open innovation initiative for delivering innovative solutions to tackle air pollution in Sofia in a flawless and extremely inspiring way. She managed to get actors from different backgrounds – public institutions, startups and NGO’s on board to work together and made everybody feel comfortable during the whole process. She acted as a facilitator and indeed facilitated the initiative from the beginning until the very end. Thanks, Nicola for the great and inspiring work!” Mariyana Hamanova, Co-chairperson at Cleantech Bulgaria

“Nicola is an outstanding business coach. Her insightfulness, both in human and business terms, and zero non-sense approach bring very fast results. She really has changed the way we think of our business. Couldn’t recommend her more highly.” Niccolò Corsini, Founder/CEO @ Sonodot Ltd

“Nicola is an amazing coach. In just 2 days, she helped me and a group of more than 10 people from completely different startups and countries to prepare for a pitch in an international green business ideas competition. She was challenging us all the time in unexpected situations and games. It was so much fun and so motivating. She charged us with confidence. It was a lifetime learning experience. Besides the business part, we became really good friends! Thank you, Nicola!” Galin Bonev, Entrepreneur

“Nicola has been a fantastic business coach, helping me and my team to develop our sustainable start up ‘Vesco Feed’ as part of the Climate-KIC programme. In addition to her deep understanding of sustainability and cross-sector expertise in innovation and entrepreneurship, Nicola is very skilled in providing clear, practical advice in how to take a business idea from ‘concept’ to ‘creation’. We’ve benefited from a number of productive workshops, which Nicola held for us. She’s been great at stretching our thinking, always bringing highly-commercial, lateral, creative inputs to our start up, helping us to identify possible challenges and opportunities quickly and linking us up with potential collaborators. I’ve really enjoyed working with Nicola and would certainly recommend her as a business coach and expert in sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship.” Hugo Ernest-Jones, Sustainability Advisor BUPA

“I’ve worked with Nicola for over a year and she has been a fantastic mentor, coach and friend. Nicola always has a fresh way to look at any business challenge and knows exactly the right thing to say to an entrepreneur to pick them up when they are in a rut. It’s clear to me that Nicola becomes deeply connected to the people and projects she coaches, which means she goes the extra mile to offer connections, resources and support through her extensive network in the sustainability space.” Caroline Wood, Founder Clotho London

“For my start-up, “Whotter”, Nicola was assigned as a coach to our team of 3 by Climate-KIC. We worked with her for over an year. Being new to the world of entrepreneurship and having a technical background, at times we got too involved on the tech side and lost focus. However, being as experienced as Nicola is, she really helped us fine tune our strategy by critically analysisng our solution and asking us the Right Questions at the right time. At times, when needed (eg: market research), she happily connected us to her vast network and got things moving quicker. Most importantly, I really admired Nicola’s ability to advice and guide with utmost politeness. She always backed the advise with concrete examples and explanations, making us understand her point of view better. We learnt a lot from Nicola and having her with us was very helpful in getting us as far as we did.”  Abdullah Sheikh, Delta Desert Academy
