As an entrepreneur and investor, Pavlo offers over 25 years of direct experience in conceptualising and building businesses across four continents. He has developed and brought to market business assets in excess of $400m through a combination of business start-ups, turnarounds, sales and acquisitions.

Using his hands-on experience, business capabilities and relationship networks, he continues to support the growth of business owners through Aurik, an ecosystem of venture capital business growth services working with over 500 established business owners to build their businesses into Assets of Value.

Through Aurik Pavlo has worked with over 3,000 businesses across all sectors of the economy providing him with a cross-continent and sectorial view that serves to troubleshoot growth dilemmas for his clients.

His corporate work with senior executives focuses on crafting and making the most sensible investments into SMB’s that are creating new market segments, services and products that hold the promise of reshaping the sectors in which these corporates currently operate

Pavlo is both an author and keynote speaker. His first, bestselling book, Sweat Scale Sell is a playbook on how any business owner can find growth in a low-growth economy and changing business environment. His second book, Reset Rebuild Reignite shows how you can build a business to thrive in any crisis. Pavlo speaks at local and international business conferences on business strategy, investment and growth, winning business mindsets and innovation.
