What do you like about your role?

At Reactor, it is very enjoyable and inspiring working for young and talented individuals identifying problems they feel for and creating a business solution to solve them. My proudest moment is when a Reactor Alumni goes out there to execute their projects to succesfully impact the world.

As the co-founder, I like to be able to work on multiple sides of the same business and create a system that is more valuable than the different individual parts similar added together.
