Sunny is the Founder/Managing Partner of Amber Consulting citing this as his motivation, “Investors often hold too much power when it comes to dictating a founder’s business, so I have launched a consulting company to provide Founders with the critical knowledge and expertise they need to confidently work with investors to build a sustainable business with a long-term outlook.”
