Ana Carolina De Pierro Bruno

Startup Innovations

Brazilian with Italian roots, Ana mixes the best of both continents: the liveliness of South America, which she translates into the Portuguese word “Animação!”, and the diversity of Europe, as she loves to learn new languages - German is her 6th and counting... Ana comes from São Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world, but even though its population is bigger than of all Austria, she considers Vienna a very vibrant and exciting city. She has been involved with innovation and entrepreneurship for some years, having co-founded a social business in Portugal and supported fellow entrepreneurs as a mentor. Ana is passionate about solving environmental and social challenges through entrepreneurship and technology and is looking forward to meeting startups that will change the world.
