About Piero

I have built two companies for my employers in Germany, e-commerce and Fintech, I experienced a triple-digit employee base company failure and launched a company which is a first-time in history in its kind. I learned by being close to founders of +200 people companies, witnessed what the transition from start-up to corporation is like and experienced the early and growth-stage of a company.
My responsibilities included market entry, fundraising, inventory sourcing, hiring, product management, offline and affiliate marketing. This range of experiences makes me have a good all-round understanding of internet businesses.
I have had forefront experience in €8-digit fundraising campaigns, negotiated €6-digit partnerships and led up to 9 people simultaneously. Two of my projects in FinTech have been first-time ever in history. Not a problem at all to figure things out myself or "with a little help from my friends". In jargon, I could say I´m the hustler.
I am happy about all the choices I have made in my life because I perfectly know myself: this is key for a future entrepreneur once it gets to making decisions on other people, the product, etc.
I have lived in Italy, the Netherlands, the UK, Germany and the US and have a global network to smoothen international roll-out of my product.

Fun, humble, energetic, creative, thoughtful, proactive, analytical is what I am and the corresponding UX/UI + Machine Learning experts are the two profiles I am looking for.
I really get along with ambitious but at the same time laid-back, down-to-earth and humble people who are up for jokes anytime. I apply a no j**k/do**he policy at all times in my life.
