What if you could take your current expertise and enhance it to be able to achieve more in your profession and your business

That is why I'm here.


Why I can help you

My name is Shahram G. Maralani. I work as a senior executive in a company called Nemko and in my free time I do research and write about business, technology, and entrepreneurship. I also help professionals and future entrepreneurs as a business mentor. In my more than twenty-five years of experience as an intrapreneur and entrepreneur, I have been working in different disciplines, industries, and geographies since year 1996, leading departments and businesses in different senior management roles or as a business owner.

I have studied and exercised intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship from well-known academia, thought leaders, business owners, and entrepreneurs. Having been owning or contributing to the projects in Business Strategy, Business Management, Digital Transformation, Marketing, Sales, Operations, Finance, People and Leadership Development, I have a great deal of knowledge which I share with people I work with, to help them succeed in their business ventures and in pursuing their ambitions.

What I can do for you

Being it ideation, evaluation, design and creation of a New Business, shaping and implementing a Growth Strategy, designing and navigating Digital Transformation journey, or different topics about day to day Business Management challenges and choices, I share my insights with people I work with so that they can better decide which path to take, by learning and employing strategic leadership and technology solutions.

My focus is primarily to help Individual Professionals and Entrepreneurs who have a business situation to address, or those who want to also establish their own online business choosing the right business idea and business model, and by shaping a successful business with all its physical and digital components. I help them become Online Entrepreneurs.



Benefit from my structured approach

Using my unique method, “8A Accelerated Business System”, I share my knowledge, experience, and my network to show people I work with a wide perspective, different strategies, and affordable solutions they can use to create, grow, and enhance their businesses next to what they already do. I structure my insights and recommended solutions in the framework of 8A Accelerated Business System so that my customers can find in them valuable help, in all the stages of their entrepreneurship journey and to remove doubts about their business ideas and the options they have in front of them.

I help people I work with by sharing methodologies, so that they can define the right criteria and assess their business ideas against those to choose the right ones. In addition, I provide recommendations helpful when they are shaping their businesschoosing its components and bringing it to life. I do share the best strategies they can use to grow their business, expand, enhance, and diversify towards a portfolio of successful products, services, and entities, or to address a business challenge.

I have done it myself

Exploring the world of Digital since age of 12, Experiencing Entrepreneurship at the age of 22, getting into my first Senior Management role at the age of 25 and an Executive Leadership role at the age of 37, I have a vast experience in Business Leadership, Strategy and Intrapreneurship.

I have been living in three countries and working and leading people from more than forty nationalities and experiencing different industries and disciplines throughout my career. I share the insights I have gained through my life and entrepreneurship journey, and lifelong education with the Professionals like you who want to decide, design, build, grow, and enhance their businesses and their own professional skills in the Digital Age. 

I will be able to show you the way or help you finding it by your own from concept to implementation. I have experienced from as high as business build with my own hands, to the details such as writing my own software codes early in my career (and still enjoy doing it), next to leading the business, shaping strategies, processes and automation systems, and outsourcing what was left which I did not have time for doing it myself. I will help you to do the same with your business deciding, prioritizing, shaping, and moving towards your great future.

I enjoy working with you doing something meaningful for people, society, and humanity. I also love Technology. I seek potential of Affordable Technologies and Software Solutions in helping you create a business, increase your customer base, sales, revenues, or gain efficiency and create profits enabling you to pursue your mission for the greater good!


I am curious. I love to learn about You, Your Passion, Your Vision, Your Potential and Your Business Ideas. I love to connect people to create win-win-win-win opportunities for the two parties, their stakeholders and for myself.

I have created 8A Accelerated Business System Exactly for this purpose. When you work with me, you will learn about this model one piece at a time and in the pace you want. I will help you create the skillset and a systematic approach in defining, analyzing, and solving the challenges you face in your business. For each of these business challenges, I will help you use 8A Accelerated Business System’s components as a tool from your Toolbox.

The main difference between my approach and other business mentors is that I teach you the methods you can use to become your own business advisor. Because no-one in the end knows and feels the needs of your business better than you. My role is to guide you learn these methodologies which you will not only apply for today, but also for tomorrow and the day after in your business. I teach fishing and not catch the fish for you, if you like.


My approach does not mean that I am going to coach you and then leave you alone. Working with me, you will have access to me and my support as far as you want. I leave it up to you to decide where to go alone and where to ask me for advice or assistance. That is why, I am not going to sell you services you do not need. You will be in charge! But I will stay with you along the way.

When we work together, I am your strategist and advisor. If you are clearing your mind about your first or your next business you want to start with, you can ask me to join you to evaluate your business ideas and decide on together. When you are shaping your business and selecting its processes, systems, and software, you may want me to join ensuring you are designing the right business model, the right processes, and the right underlying systems and solutions.

Researching the world of modern entrepreneurship for years, I have come across a specific need. There is a lot our in the market. There are individuals and companies who offer training courses, seminars, webinars, consulting, software and more trying to help entrepreneurs with methodologies, business models, strategies, tools and more. There are ones who offer a legitimate service and valuable content and there are others who are trying to rob people by selling them content which is not necessarily going to result in the success they promise to their audience.

I have established The Business River as platforms in which I and other subject matter experts share their knowledge about Business Build, Business Strategies, Business Models, Business Build Blueprints, and Start Up ecosystems, who are truly able to help entrepreneurs build businesses.

3. Business Hack – join half-a-day up to two-days of intensive working in person on your business build, management, or transformation

4. Business Courses – learn, shape and implement business strategies and solutions at your own pace joining one of our online courses
