About Sotiris

I am fortunate to have started and sold two of my own startups over the last 16 years. Also, I was part of the founding team that took another company public in an initial public offering that raised...millions of euros, starting from ... scratch in a small office with nothing but a couple of desks and a few chairs.
Of course I failed once (the first time) and my exit strategy for the second one was a complete failure!
But with every step I made, I add to my reservoir of knowledge (and I still have much to learn) and I'm using it again for the next challenge.
Currently I'm the founder and CEO of a startup in stealth mode, looking for valuable partners and teammates in this endeavor.
