We worked together
I got to know Bruno from our working group at the Founder Institute. The relationship has been extremely fruitful for me, and he is still co ... nstantly lending fresh insights to my business. Bruno has already proven himself with his track record of success scaling and operating large organizations. I'm sure it's not often you get a guy this experienced on Founder Dating. Also flexible/ friendly/ open to new ideas, which I imagine is a rare combo. I would love to start something with Bruno some day.
