Background

About Thomas

Founded Vine Visitor Inc in January 2017 and learning since then. The team is growing, we are now 5 (3 in the US and 2 in France) and working with a European company on the development of an MVP.
Not coming from the startup world, I am learning everything along the way but my previous experience as an export consultant has helped me a lot in establishing the strategy and building partnerships.

Quote

The world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. The ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly colored, and it's very loud, and it's fun for a while. Many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, "Hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, "Hey, don't worry; don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride." - Bill Hicks
