In 2018, André left his role as CEO of the startup he'd co-founded, Vinomofo, and built into a $100m+ global wine enterprise, to start Good Empire, to 'try to help save the f**king world'. "I didn't want to just keep complaining about it at dinner parties. I wanted to try to help. I wanted to be able to say to my kids that I did something to try to help." Join André as he shares a bit of his story, and what drove him to walk away from the company he'd spent 12 years building, to start something new, something of impact. And why he believes every founder and CEO in the world needs to be thinking this way.
