I worked with Mica to help me make some big decisions about my life and career. She brought a warm and insightful approach that helped me really hone down on what was important to me in my work and my life more broadly. She encouraged and challenged me in just the right proportions, and I felt genuinely cared for. Off the back of our work, I became much clearer on what my true values are. As a result, I was able to make some important decisions that have taken my life into a different trajectory. I don’t think I could have done that without Mica's help.
Chief Product Officer
Working with Mica has given me peace of mind in how to be a founder. I have learnt to appreciate my individual leadership style and improved my sleep. She has led technical teams before, which is another point that I value in working with her. Her incredible empathy makes every single session a learning experience and my brain feels in a Zen state of mind after each session. I can highly recommend working with her, especially for first time founders!
Tech Startup Founder & CTO
Mica was able to help me immensely in ordering my jumbled thoughts about where I wanted to take my career next. She was able to help me structure my thoughts and translate them into executable actions. I would describe my experience of working with Mica as somewhere between teaming up with a Chief of Staff, Project/Product Manager and co-founder. Particularly helpful for people who have a lot of ideas and struggle to order them.

Mica conducted a group resilience building workshop for 10 founders from our portfolio companies, which resonated so strongly with participants that several founders have engaged her to do sessions for their companies. As investors, we speak of resilience as an innate trait or talent in founders, which can be no further from the truth. Founders have the opportunity to become better leaders, managers and evangelists if they invest in building a resilient mindset to better manage stress and communication. Providing high-performance individuals with this toolkit for development is Mica's unique value proposition. Particularly during a time of a global pandemic, as teams are increasingly becoming distributed and working remotely, I can think of no better playbook to offer to our founders and their teams.
Managing Investment Partner
Our company, like many others in 2020, had to execute a massive amount of changes to cope with the COVID pandemic. The situation was creating an unprecedented level of stress in our teams and so, when I was tasked with forming a new project team, I realised I needed help! Mica helped me understand how to better support the team with workshops and 1-on-1 coaching. Her workshops were interactive, informative, engaging and pragmatic, covering various aspects of dealing with stress and burnout. It served as a great moment for the new team to come together, build trust, and create a safe space for us to talk about the challenges we were facing at the time. I would recommend engaging with Mica to anyone dealing with stress or burnout in their teams or as individuals.

After having a discovery session with Mica I was surprised by how much we explored within an hour. Mica provided me with a guided conversation and allowed me space to reflect on my values, strengths and processes. She made our sessions fun and they quickly became the highlight of my week. We explored two questions – why I enjoy what I do, and what my north star is going forward. After 6 sessions I am much more confident in answering the two and have committed to continuing with monthly sessions. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity and encourage every entrepreneur to have at least an hour session with Mica – the results are definitely worth it!
