Cadouu was founded in 2016 by Nora Stolz. Based on her own experience, Nora feels people receive too many - often under appreciated gifts - while true wishes remain unsatisfied.
So she put her background in financial services, product development and strategy to work to shape up the vision behind a clever group gifting platform that reinvents the way people will give gifts.
Nora, Founder & CEO, was born and raised in Germany but spent most of her adult life abroad. After living in five different countries, Nora was lucky to accumulate an amazing circle of friends from all over the world. This inspired the idea behind Cadouu: a mobile platform that allows friends & family from all over the world to share the same group gifting experience. One gift in the name of all your friends. Nora holds a Masters in International Business from Grenoble Graduate School of Business and a Masters in International Management from Brighton University. She likes yoga and running.
Vasco, co-Founder & CTO joined Cadouu in February 2017. Before joining he worked for several technology startups in Portugal, France and Germany. When it comes to product development his visionary approach means exceptional execution. Vasco holds a BSc in Computer Science from the Nova University in Lisbon. In his spare time, Vasco listens to entrepreneurship podcasts , travels to new places and checks out new coffee shops - sometimes even combining all three.
Filipe, Software Engineer, joined the team in February 2017. He comes with a wealth of experience in software architecture, infrastructure and database modelling. Before Cadouu, Filipe worked on several technology projects across a number of startups. He holds a BSc in Computer & Telematics Engineering from the University of Aveiro in Portugal. Filipe is known for his 'critical pragmatism'. He is a keen runner and has recently been flexing his table tennis muscle.
Simon, UX and UI designer, is the latest addition, joining Cadouu in June 2017. He has a background in interactive design working with companies like The BBC, The National Trust and The Royal Collection, and moved to Berlin 1.5 years ago. Simon is a dab-hand at storytelling and his communication skills add panache to the office as well as the platform.
Jelena, Digital Marketing Consultant, is the freshest addition, joining Cadouu in November 2017. Jelena moved to London from sunny Croatia 8 years ago (and yes, she still misses the sun). There, she has worked for some of the biggest luxury retailers.
She still lives in London from where she keeps in touch with all the latest retail and digital trends to bring all her experience to Cadouu. In her spare time, she enjoys a good yoga session and has an unhealthy obsession with vintage furniture.
