About Dragos

In the late 90s my first serious job was in corporate finance and I thought I was going to build a career as an investor. Did even an MBA in Finance and took CFA level 1.

Then I discovered that building a business is more fun and so I started my own thing, in 2004. In the following ten years I built a software company, a media group, a digital advertising agency and an online boutique selling wine to its members.

For the past years I was more involved in working with early-stage founders helping them raise money. A byproduct of that is Nordic 9, an up to date resource about investors and startups from Europe. I also have a pet project, BestShot, an AI-based Apple Watch app that helps people become better at tennis.

I have lived in Prague, Oslo, Bucharest, Bruxelles, Toronto. Now I am juggling between San Francisco, Stockholm and Madrid. AMA.

Every Sunday I send an email with what I find interesting in the European investment space. You can sign up here.
