At my very first job, I learned that your decisions are only as strong as the quality of information you base them on. And I’ve lived a big part of my life - especially professionally - according to those words.

I’m very happy to have lived in Porto, Oslo, London and Brussels. I played tennis since I can remember. I've always been passionate for numbers and puzzles. I graduated with Distinction from London Business School's Masters in Financial Analysis. And then I went from working in one of the largest Investment Banks in the world to helping build a very small startup.


I am very, very happy with the switch. It lets me chase after the thrill of opening up a new market by having a different business proposition.


And it gave me one the best days of this epic ride: being halfway across Europe, pitching for an international audience of over a thousand people, and delivering a successful presentation and Q&A. In the end of it all, we secured funding from international investors. 


It would be rude not to mention Shilling, after praising our other investors: from day one, Shilling has been a trusted advisor who provided us with straight-to-the-point and actionable insights. 


The team has already picked and helped drive some of the most exciting startups in the Portuguese ecosystem. There are so many household names there in their portfolio: we wanted to be part of that group. And now we are!
