Imagine quitting your job as a corporate lawyer to found a startup studio that builds and develops OTHER startups? That’s exactly what Ronen Heine, CEO and founder of LUNA, a one-stop shop of startup strategy, legal, accounting and investment services, did when he packed it all up after 4 years as a suit-and-tie lawyer. Seizing the opportunity to change the way these services are delivered, Ronen founded LUNA in 2015, a startup studio that helps businesses, social enterprises and startups launch. Equipping them with the knowledge needed to make waves and sustain their ideas, Ronen created this studio to assist in launching, scaling and pitch for investment to develop and educate entrepreneurs on the technical ins-and-outs of the startup space. Let’s get real with Ronen about what it takes to leave the stability of the corporate world in favour of the less predictable, and how he’s helped more than 500 startup businesses get to the next phase.
