Prečo som na GROWNi

I’m a startup enthusiast, bringing technical products to life for the last 10 years.I was part of several mentorship programs. I believe it’s important to transfer knowledge to other people. I expect to meet someone motivated to learn new things.I’m willing to share my expertise related to software development (backend/frontend), website development and e-commerce.
