Hi, I'm Enrico Tam :)

After trying to become a professional tennis player, I somehow got entangled in a PhD in engineering, an MBA programme and a big consulting firm before being drawn into the startup world.

I recovered well :) I'm now doing what I like the most: intense tennis training while bootstrapping startup projects with the aim of improving people's lives. Ah yes, I almost forgot - I write to learn and to share my adventures :)

Don't hesitate to contact me on twitter!
