He was founding teams of several startups from zero-to-one, including fintech startup Red Pulse, advertising software platform Jact Media, as well as several that never saw the light of day.

Eric has also advised large multinational companies on ventures, innovation, product, and strategy. A former business designer of IDEO, strategist of frog design, and project lead of Z-Ben Advisors, he has served a broad base of clients ranging from Huawei to Fitbit to Credit Suisse.
