How Shivana is building a better working world

“The EY Divestment Survey 2018 indicated that 74% of PE executives struggle to assess the effect data, analytics and technology may have on their portfolio company value. By using predictive and prescriptive analytics to identify likely future scenarios for the business, I help clients make improvements to put assets in the best possible position for a sale process.”
