I worked in companies such as Coca-Cola and Stone Payments and from an early age I was interested in starting up, I tried to create startups in education (I also work as a professor of science and finance), Research and Development and vegan food. I have experience with sales, people management and digital marketing, besides of course to have contact with researches in cosmetics, brewery, nanotechnology and food.
