He is a great entrepreneur already. After graduating from an amazing University and working for a very large company, he decided to leave th ... at and change countries to start a new startup company, in a yet-to-be nascent market, and drove it very far, pivoting as needed along the way, and now he is doing it again (except back in the US this time ;) ). He is full of energy, high spirited and easy to talk to, and enthusiastic about entrepreneurship and life in general.
