Who Am I: tl;dr version
I started my first business at 16, selling PCs. I then owned and managed some offline businesses (real estate agency, night club and others).
I started to work online in 2005, I’ve been the Romanian representative for Yahoo! in 2008, I started a consulting business in online communication in 2006, I’ve been involved in building the blogging community in Romania, sold some blogs, co-founded a startup (MavenHut) in gaming, part of the 2012 cohort at Startup Bootcamp Dublin. Left MavenHut in 2016, started angel investing and startup mentoring. In 2017 I launched The CEO Library.
In 2020 I’ve looking at a new business, still in the early stages.
