The Evolution of Peter Yared: From coding video games in Vienna to founding startups in Silicon Valley

Our CEO, Peter Yared, grew up in multiple countries across the world including Switzerland, Austria, England, and the US. While hopping from country to country, Peter learned various languages and cultures that taught him to perceive concepts from multiple perspectives. This experience helped with his success as a seven-time startup founder, as he brought a new and different approach to running a SaaS startup.
