Venture Trainee: Innovation
Bárbara joined the Bundl family in June 2021 as a Venture and Innovation Trainee.
Throughout her Bachelor in Economics, she worked as a brand promoter, event hostess and was part of the marketing department of the university's investment club. After completing her studies she took a break to travel before working as an audit trainee. After 8 months of working in auditing, she decided to pursue a role requiring critical and creative thinking, which led her to a Master's in Management. During the masters she carried out a consulting project for a Portuguese energy company. The same company hired Bundl to further develop and validate the project she was working on, and the rest is history...
Bárbara enjoys challenging projects, especially the development of concepts that can have a real impact on a customer's life. Whether it’s searching for innovative solutions in brainstorming sessions or backing up ideas with concrete data, Bundl has given her the opportunity to grow and learn at a rapid pace.
Outside of Bundl she really enjoys exploring roads less travelled. In 2019 she did a backpacking trip through Southeast Asia and discovered her passion for low-budget travelling. She is passionate about exploring new cultures, challenging herself by stepping outside her comfort zone, and discovering spots that don't pop up on TripAdvisor. One of her adventures took her to Beijing, where she studied for 5 months in 2019 just before Covid-19 appeared.
