When we interviewed Carlos Pierre, CEO and Founder at Badi over a year ago, we couldn’t have known just how far Badi will have come. The Barcelona startup is helping to solve the housing problem in many cities worldwide by connecting people to their perfect roommate. This month, Carlos will share their story at Startup Grind in the framework of a fireside chat, followed by the usual networking session involving empanadas and beers. See you there!
