The main goal is to connect an individual who has a lot of knowledge and experience in the field with someone who hasn’t gained the same knowledge or experience. We believe, whether in our career or life, having a mentor is crucial to our continued growth and development.

Chief Technology Officer & Founding Team at Eprenz
After graduation, I thought to do my master’s in entrepreneurship, but became aware that formal university education can only give me information and knowledge but real-world experiments on entrepreneurship can give me the ability and experience. So, I chose the second way. You can reach out to me if you would like to talk to me about technology, marketing, and entrepreneurship. Happy to talk!
