A recent graduate from Cardiff University with a degree in Financial Mathematics, Borna is interested in finding efficient solutions to modern problems. 

Wing Card was born from the passion to innovate in-person networking by harnessing the same technology as Apple Pay to provide a fully customisable, contactless physical business card. With a tap of the card, your social media links and contact information magically appear onto the contact’s phone thus eliminating the need for a paper business card. Wing’s long term vision is to develop software that combines the positive aspects of online networking experiences with in-person networking and create more meaningful conversations everywhere.
