About Me

Three essential components

Entrepreneur //
Pragmatism

Those two words describe very precisely my mindset. I am passionate about solving complex problems, challenging the status quo and launching new products that have a huge impact on peoples life. It is also important to put up with the fact that you can’t know everything and you can’t be right all the time - but without trying how will you know? "I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying." - Michael Jordan

Perseverance //
Commitment

Building companies and products is a very hard and exhausting process. There are some days when you feel like the whole world is against you. Sustaining a clear focus, ability to backup, reanalyze the situation and continue the hustle - this is what makes good professionals to great founders. Sometimes going the extra mile with your team makes no visible impact on the product, but it does an impressive huge impact on the spirit, mindset, and success of the team.

Passion //
Empathy

“The eyes are the mirror of the soul and reflect everything that seems to be hidden; and like a mirror, they also reflect the person looking into them.” - Like Paulo Coelho described this in his manuscript, I strongly believe that passion and empathy are keys to sustainable business development. It is essential to create a strong basement/rapport with your employees, your partners, your customers - this will build a healthy foundation for long-term relationships.
