I’m a scientist, turned founder, turned investor, with deep experience in the tech world. First venture I founded and exited (GoodGuide.com) was backed by NEA and DFJ and creates tools used by Fortune 500 companies, and millions of users around the world. Since then, I’ve been supporting founders with capital and expertise through a Silicon Valley non-profit (WesttoWest.org) and leading all initiatives for 500 Startups in Europe and Africa.
With experience on both sides of the table as operator and investor, and at all different stages of a venture from idea to growth, I’m a true hands-on advisor and investor in tens of early stage tech companies. I’ve helped develop multiple tech ecosystems around the world and I'm helping Shilling do the same in Portugal.
