About me

Entrepreneur, speaker, investor

I'm an entrepreneur and software developer. I wrote his first lines of codes on an Atari ST when Iwas 8 years old. I founded my first company at the age of 19. 

I also started the first Lean Startup Circle meetup group in continental Europe in an effort to create closer ties with other entrepreneurs facing the tough challenges of building a business.

I invest in software startups and give talks about my experience and how to quickly validate your business idea.
