João Romão turned down a promising career with a consultancy firm for the tough but rewarding life of a startup founder. At 19 and before co-founding Wishareit, João launched and ran a web hosting company. More recently – and a bit cooler – he won the European Commission’s 2012 audience award for European Young Innovator of the Year. His experiences working on his own and on the European stage guide him in his duties as CEO. He is currently a co-founder and CEO at Wishareit which is a collaborative gifting platform that helps you find, recommend, give and receive the perfect gifts for your friends and family.
