Who I am


Operating where commerce and technology meet

That is where I feel most at home!

 

Hi, thanks for reading this story. My name is Vladimir Budejicky.

I have spent over 25 years as an entrepreneur, predominantly in IT, working in The Netherlands and during some four years also in Venezuela.

During most of this stretch, I have been in charge of doing business with large government organizations and multinationals. Doing business with such large entities frequently is a challenge for small outfits; unless you know what the rules of the game are.

On the other hand, almost 30 years in total in IT have taught me how to deliver on projects. I have overseen and concluded in excess of 500 IT projects, ranging from small/medium to large scale with an “on-time/on-budget” success rate in excess of 99%. In an industry that is haunted by late delivery and budget overrun, this is not a bad score.

Finally, cash and commerce is the life blood of a company. Managing cash is often no priority at all or the know-how is not adequate. I can provide this know-how and expertise.

My background as an entrepreneur permits me to view commercial, financial and technological aspects of the challenges before me.

I hold a Msc. degree in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology.

Who I work with


The services I provide are particularly suited for the following categories of customers:

  • Startups
  • Scale-ups
  • VCs, Angels, Banks
  • Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
  • IT Firms
  • Government & Enterprises

For what I do for you see here.


How it works


The first step to begin your business transformation, is to schedule a complimentary 20-minute Business Strategy Call to discuss your business goals and challenges.

This is NOT a “free consulting session” but a powerful opportunity to find out what’s impacting your company’s growth.

In a follow-up, I will provide a high-level assessment of WHAT you’re missing and WHY you’re not getting the results you want. I will also make a professional recommendation for the best next steps you should take now, to take your business to the next level!

From this point onward, you may decide to leave it at that or to step up our mutual commitment.

I am ready!


Why it works


When you partner with me, you get the most effective, realistic and affordable advice and hands-on services that you are looking for right now.

I am a seasoned entrepreneur and adviser who is willing to go beyond just advice.

Where necessary I will participate in the processes, actions and changes as proposed in my analyses and advice.

Remember to start with the end in mind!


 

What makes me different


In business, I live by Steven Covey’s 2nd habit: “Start with the end in mind“. Logically, if you don’t know where you want to end up, you will never know what to do to get anywhere.

My passion, in all honesty, is what I call the “Business Roundabout“, the marriage (point) in all organizations between technology, commerce, business, execution, customer satisfaction and finance. I know, this seems like a tall order, but my firm belief is that those issues cannot be seen in isolation. In fact, wherever I see them being treated as such, chances are the organization at hand is performing sub-optimally, to put it very mildly.

Hands-on and result oriented guidance, advice and services with clear objectives and deliverables is what I do. My background is divers and in almost all cases I am at home in the field of startups, commerce, finance, IT, business administration and technology.

The same background allows me to view commercial, financial and technological aspects of all challenges. I listen very carefully, observe and take the time to deeply understand the critical issues at hand and develop a personalized, honest response designed to drive enduring value.

I always start with the end in mind!
