About this event

April is Mentorship month at Startup Grind. Mentors are usually seen as pinnacles of wisdom and nurturing. But anyone who's ever had a mentor knows they aren’t just there to cheer you on during the good times. They show up to encourage you during the down times, too.  And if there’s ever a time to appreciate that type of support, it’s now.

Rob De Feo is a startup advocate at Amazon Web Services spending his time helping startups in Europe and beyond. He mentors startups CTO’s and founders as they begin their journey, to helping large scale startup leverage technology as they build and scale their businesses. He has helped many of Europe’s largest startups and startup institutions, including Techstars, Deliveroo, Monzo, Skyscanner, and Starling Bank to scale their platforms and meet global demand. Rob is now focused on working with the stage startup communities across Europe. Prior to Amazon, Rob was the founder of AI startup Jemboo, and was technical lead of Expedia’s Innovation division, building one of the earliest industry chatbots.

To end the month our next SG Virtual is with Rob de Feo startup advocate, Speaker, CTO Mentor and Developer and Vytautas Dagilis Delivery Manager at Lottoland & Co-Founder of the Gib Devs Community.
