About Orly Zeewy, Brand Architect

Orly grew up in Lausanne, Switzerland and is bilingual in French and English.

“Think of a startup with all its moving parts as flying a plane, while you’re building it, booking passengers, marketing the airline, interviewing co-pilots, and serving coffee. In this book, Orly Zeewy navigates the turbulence, and provides a flight plan so you know when you’ve landed in the right airport.”
