Shefket Robelli

Co-Founder/COO


Working in finance and investment at the bank, I always enjoyed getting to know my clients and finding out what was important to them and what they wanted to achieve in the future. Still, I realized that I did not want to work just as a financial counsellor. I always had a general interest for new technologies and I wanted to bring my passions – establishing personal connections, finance, technology – together.

After 15 years spent in investment banking (mostly working at Citigroup in the Telecom M&A and Equity Capital Markets teams) advising clients globally, Emanuele moved to the entrepreneurship world by successfully setting up, financing and heading two start-up companies in the online F&B sector.

Eduard Maximov

CMO


What drives me professionally is the passion to tackle complex business challenges and the responsibility to engage & enable teams to BE and DO BETTER by always having the customer/consumer/user at heart. Therefore, I tend to challenge the conventional thinking in sales & marketing through the way we think, plan and act as a business and as a brand.
