You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

2 successful exits. Building companies without investments in a non entrepreneurial environment.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I love to work with cofounders, I believe that the winning combo is 3. 3 Smart individuals with different visions, backgrounds but working in a same vision is very powerful.

As an Advisor

Straight forward, most of the problems with startups are related to short term focus. Is not only about the hours you put in, it is also about the quality of your work and in what are you working. Even if it is a moving target you have to stay focus.
I love entrepreneurs and the guys that have the drive will be a successful ones.
