About Bill:

Growing up in 3 different countries, co-founding several Startups, deeply immersing myself in the Startup & innovation ecosystem and traveling the world taught me many things. A few key takeaways: - There is no need for a trade-off between business success and positive impact, in fact, opportunities are everywhere in this space. - Startups are the game-changers and for a sustainable future, we need to change the game. - Innovation starts with bringing smart, driven and entrepreneurial people together. Co-working communities are one of the best ways to facilitate this. - Relentless focus on product, your users and prioritization is the only way to succeed in Startups, particularly when bootstrapping. - Co-founding Startups is the hardest thing I've ever done. And the most beautiful, inspiring and insightful thing. - Life is one big adventure. Let's make it a fun ride.
