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 sucked into the startup world.

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


Don't hesitate to write to me on twitter!
