The last blog post I wrote about my favorite articles dates 5 months back. It feels like an eternity.

Crazy. Let me share 10 tweets from the last five months… which may or may not be related to the above events. Continue reading →

After more than 5 years at eYeka, which have taught me a lot about marketing, communication, creativity, crowds, earned me a Masters and a PhD… I am happy to share that I will be joining WiSEED, the world’s first equity crowdfunding platform, as Marketing & Communications Director.
