    Welcome everyone to another episode of the Inevitable Podcast.  

    In this episode, I had the pleasure to host Iona Szkurnik.   

    For those who don't know, Iona is the founder & CEO of Education Journey, an education platform that offers education solutions to companies and their employees, helping them to become lifelong learners.   

    Iona is also the co-founder and Board Member of Brazil at Silicon Valley, a movement spearheaded by students from Stanford and Berkeley that aims at improving Brazil’s competitiveness through innovation and technology. Brazil at Silicon Valley also holds an annual conference where it brings together the most influential Brazilian executives, entrepreneurs, experts, and policy-makers to discuss topics that are relevant to the country's development.  

    Here are some of the questions that I asked Iona:  

    - What made you decide to leave the public sector and take a Master's of Education Technology at Stanford? 

    - When did you realize that you wanted to work with education? How was the feeling of finding your purpose in life? 

    - Were there any moments when you felt uncertain about leaving your job in Brazil to take a Master’s in the US? 

    - How did all the different experiences that you had help you better understand what you wanted to build? 

    -Can you tell us how Brazil at Silicon Valley was founded? 

    -In 2020 you founded Education Journey in order to offer education as a corporate benefit. Can you tell us a little more about the company and its purpose? 

    -What has been your biggest source of inspiration throughout your career? 

    -Eventually, when Education Journey becomes a major success and you feel like you accomplished what you were looking for at the beginning of your journey, what would you be doing?

    Welcome everyone to the Inevitable Podcast.

    In this episode, I had the pleasure to chat with Paulo Martins.

    For those who don't know, Paulo is the founder and CEO of Arena, a data platform for consumer enterprises to increase engagement, conversion and revenue. Arena has over 25,000 customers in 50 countries and just announced its Series A round led by CRV.

    Before that, Paulo was part of the Ad Products team at Hulu, scaling the company from its early stage to $1.1B annual revenue and growing its user base from 100K+ to 7M paying subscribers in 2 years.

    Paulo started his career as a software engineer at NASA Houston and has a master's degree in Data Mining and Machine Learning.

    He had amazing personal and professional experiences as an entrepreneur and business leader and is here today to share some of these learnings with us.

    Here are some of the questions that I asked Paulo:

    • What is your formula to continuously push yourself to the limit throughout your life?
    • What did you have to do to move to the US early in your career?
    • You almost took a very different career path. How was your experience in the fighting and entertainment industry?
