- E-commerce
- Energy
- Online marketplaces
- Mobile apps

Through my latest venture B-Works (www.b-works.io), I serve as interim CTO with agile teams of experienced Developers to high-potential internet start-ups, help them with the IT architecture and development set-up, outline the technology and scalability roadmap and help onboard a technical team until the startup has a solid technical in-house tech-team.
I may invest sweat for equity on the high-potential startups with outstanding founders, proving to show high motivation and dedication.
