Roland Bernath, CEO
Roland enjoys making processes that set us free.
Roland has been born in an entrepreneurial family and has been surrounded by business from early on. At age 16 he went to the USA to be an exchange student for a year then in Mexico for a couple of months. Else then picking up the local languages he was surrounded by business families as hosts, he was able to further study from them.
He graduated from Corvinus Business School in Budapest and became an economist/bachelor in business and management. During his university years he did an internship at a multinational fund management firm, then got hired at a local IT company, where he and his friend got an investment to create an online e-commerce platform. This is where he started to show interest for selling online and making money online. At his last college year he studied abroad in Hong Kong at HKUST, where he made many connections with chinese business people and professors. Eversince he got back from Hong Kong and graduated, he is a far-east sourcing manager at the largest industrial firm of his country.
He understands that being an employee will not bring him closer to his dreams of being financially free, so he started purchasing and running web stores, some of them he has been successfully running and some of them he failed at, learning a lot on the way. Including his experiences he seems to fit in our adventure of building a successful e-commerce company, and showing all of you how we did it!
Some facts about him: He loves traveling, doing extreme sports, he is a certified scuba diver and he can solve the Rubik’s cube.
Later on you will be able to meet him on my show and podcast and he will tell us more about himself and his visions for the future, stay tuned!
