Arturo Piña

Startups. Product Management. Operations.

Musician turned startup generalist with +8 years of creating “zero to one” product and operations experiences.

After a series of startups, a couple of acquisitions, and starting a 7-figure business, I now lead a tech non-profit and provide fractional product and operational support to startups.
