INSPIRING AND ENGAGING PEOPLE TOWARDS BOLD GOALS

Bernardo has the entrepreneurial mindset.

He starts every day with a strong belief and will to make an impact in the world, by being a better person each day, and by creating and developing impactful businesses and projects.

Bernardo has built a rich portfolio of adventures, such as founding turnU, a communications agency with tailor-made communication solutions; and Wipanto, a marketing and data analytics start-up which later got acquired by a major digital marketing agency. On those experiences over the last years, Bernardo attracted and managed more than 20 communication projects, as well as all the financial operations.

Simultaneously, Bernardo has been focused on growing the Portuguese' start-up ecosystem as an investment manager at Beta Capital. There, he developed a broad experience in attracting and analysing more than 100 projects per year, managing an investment fund, as well as doing strategic advisory for his many portfolio businesses.
