About Utku

Founder and CEO of Buck.ai

Engineer with an MBA degree with a passion to build products people want. I've founded my software company in Turkey in 2011 and my USA startup in 2017. Both are running successfully now.

I believe hard work, passion and humility are the answers to many business questions. I believe in users and their wisdom when it comes to choosing products.

Quote

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - T.E.Lawrence
