I'm a serial entrepreneur, impact investor and Y Combinator alum. I invest in purpose+profit businesses with Fifty.vc. I also run the impact.tech community of techies who want to combine purpose with profit - we do monthly meetups in San Francisco.

I have worked in tech since 2006. Most recently, I was a partner at Eastern Europe's leading early stage VC Innovation Nest. Before that I co-founded Base CRM, an amazing Ruby on Rails software house Applicake (acquired by Base in 2013) and European Rails Conference Railsberry. I also started the Polish startup community Hive.

I dance contemporary dance, slackline, run, ski & snowboard. I love velocity and the performing arts. I dream big and I laugh a lot.
