“To run a start-up is a huge life challenge. And yet, that is the challenge I would like to take!”
With this “dare to venture” spirit, Bruno, Founder of ANA Artwork Material Analysis, aspires to transform himself from a scientist of chemistry to an entrepreneur of artwork authentication.
Bruno is a fan of arts and culture. It all looked like a coincidence when he got inspired to start his own business on artwork analysis after attending an international artwork auction. At the event, he was not only impressed by the enduring passion for Chinese artwork that the collectors expressed, but also was amazed by the fact that there was a lack of scientific solution for artwork analysis – all the checking and authentication work was still done manually in a conventional way.
With his knowledge in laser technology and insight into the unchartered blue ocean of scientific artwork analysis, Bruno has developed a ground-breaking laser technology to discern authentic artwork from counterfeit, redefining market standard for artwork analysis and art authentication.
Switching from scientist to start-up owner is no easy task. Fortunately, Cyberport provides the ideal platform and dynamic environment for Bruno to set up his own venture. For instance, the networking events that hook him up with other entrepreneurs within the Cyberport ecosystem and industry partners, the promotion opportunities and market exposure, all empower Bruno to stay positive and to embrace every challenge as a change to enrich his life experience.
“Being an entrepreneur is an amazing experience. The mix of sweet and sweat makes it such a meaningful journey.” To Bruno, what matter most is how he keeps learning and improving, and makes the most out of this challenging yet rewarding voyage.
