The smart, wireless, GPS-powered alarm system

The smart, wireless, GPS-powered alarm system

Andrius bruno Rimkunas is co-founder of Monimoto  - an affordable, easy-to-use, reliable, smart GPS tracker with a year’s battery-life that cleverly alerts your phone if your motorcycle is moved. 

In this show we dive into Andrius' many entrepreneurial ventures, including his roles at the Lithuanian state television and radio, selling cars in Ukraine, being head of digital, and starting two businesses. Andrius describes himself as "a bit of a crazy person" as he's always finding ways to earn money. This trait has helped him as he's faced tremendous obstacles launching ventures that didn't turn out the way quite as expected. Definitely one of the most resilient entrepreneurs I've ever chatted with on the show!
