I've been coding for 25 years, but studied economics and social sciences. Worked as a financial software consultant, then founded, lead and bootstrapped a web 2.0 startup called Stix.to. I've also been doing a lot of consulting, full-stack and frontend. But now I'm going all in on cryptocurrencies.
Bootstrapped a startup from idea to company with great team and product. We never found product/market fit, but I really learned a lot of running a startup, building a team, marketing and when to listen to advisors. And when not to. Real-world experience that will come in handy now when I'm doing an even more serious startup.
What I'm most happy with is that team members I recruited for "my" previous startup is now recruiting me for "their" startup.
