About Ben

I dived into the startup world in 2012 when participating in a Startup weekend in Paris with about 80 like-minded startup and technology enthusiasts. After 72hours of brainstorming, designing and coding (and few pizzas) we went to the finale and won the Customer Insight Award. Since then I was hooked. I started my first startup in 2014 and the first errors, mistakes, joys and tears followed. We had a list of potential customers with interest in the technology, investors ready to back us up but we never launched the product for different reasons. Entrepreneurship is not a sprint run it is a marathon where you learn along the way and I am glad that I made so many errors the first time so I am sure not to make them again the next time.
My skills are digital, marketing, growth and strategy and I believe I can any young startup to find its way and market. I believe a startup should always question itself, its purpose and targeted audience and should be ready to pivot overnight. Entrepreneurship is about solving an issue so let's find a problem and fix it together.
