Supporting the startup ecosystem in the UAE - mentorship, lectures, workshops

Mentorship, lectures & 

Supporting the startup ecosystem

After working at agencies and corporates for 19+ years, I launched my own company to be able to do the things I care about the most; which is helping entrepreneurs move their company forward through building brand preference and competitive advantage.

Seeing a sparkle in the eyes of an entrepreneur during a one-on-one session, bringing a smile to one's face when presenting a brand strategy, making sure all pieces of the puzzle fit. That is what drives me and that is why I am happy to support the startup ecosystem in the UAE by being a mentor and by providing lectures and workshops.

A word from former mentee Sami

"In our first meeting, I was completely bewildered about what I needed to do and how I needed to do it. Sylvia never enforced her opinion but rather asked the right questions. She is good at leading you towards the answers and sharpens your focus on things that are important in the future. She listens and analyzes what you say and looks for the objectives you are trying to achieve and guides you on how to achieve them.


After our session, I felt confident in the path that we want to take and how we are going to move forward with our identity and what message we want to portray."

- Sami Elayan, Founder at Finer Diner & former mentee at DSCA-Startupbootcamp
