About Andreas Bertoldi
My passion is to make an impact on the African continent. I enjoy diverse projects and working on the conceptualisation of projects with a smart team of experts that can help pull things together innovatively. I enjoy playing the interface between the public and private sectors. What do I find important? Making a real difference and no repetitive work. I am not about a template approach.
