I am an accidental Entrepreneur!
I turned from employee to entrepreneur after 20 years in the corporate world. The decision to give up the comforting security of a regular salary and venture out on my own wasn’t easy. There was just me, my computer and my dog… and big dreams.
But when work, commitment, and pleasure become one, it ignites a spark deep within…That’s what happened to me when I founded Fulki, a branding and communication firm 10, years ago.
Fulki means ‘a spark’, a spark of passion… we are innovative creators of cutting edge communication tools, that spark the emotional magic connect between the brand and the audience!
We design communication that plays a catalytic role in creating mind-set change among target audiences.
