An organized, results-oriented marketing professional. Excellent communication, relationship-building, and influencing skills; I can bring fresh perspectives and add ethical value to the planning and strategy.
What's your story before Skåne Startups?
A great learner with a problem-solving mindset, I have 8 years of experience in my own agency in Brazil and a degree in Business Administration with a major in Marketing. As a Marketing Manager, my team and I covered all touchpoints with the clients. During my time at our agency, I was responsible for inbound marketing and sales, tailored customer service, and established it as the agency's flagship.
During my first years in Sweden, I decided to study design, and Hyper Island was my choice. Now, I am a proficient user of Adobe products, in addition, I have acquired a wide range of skills that enable me to integrate into the culture of a group or team and continuously strive for common goals. Hyper Island has greatly contributed to my team building. I work as a freelancer as well, in partnership with visual artists, animating and managing 2D projects.
What was your role at Skåne Startups?
I was responsible for optimizing the marketing strategies as well as increasing brand awareness. I was involved in all kinds of startup events including Women in Entrepreneurship, Nordic Demo Day, SaaSiest and Startup Live! 2022. I designed all the marketing materials and visuals for Startup Live! event in Helsingborg. As the project lead, I developed the marketing plan and event concept, coordinated with the event agency, and ensured the success of the event. The event page reached out 3000 page views, more than 300 registration and 250 joined in person in Tivolli Helsingborg.
