Lorenzo Cella


I'm an engineer living in Zurich, Switzerland. Born and raised in Bergamo, Italy.

I have a degree in Automation Engineering from Polytechnic of Milan.

In 2015, after a successful crowdfunding campaign, I founded Bolt Motion, where I created Bolt, the most portable electric skateboard on the market. Bolt Motion was closed at the end of 2020.

I like making stuff. I'm planning to write about the next projects, while I'm building them. Subscribe to the once-in-a-while newsletter.

Now (inspired by Derek Sivers)

Currently, I've just move to a new flat and I will start working as a Software Engineer in Zurich, leaving my position after 3 years.

Traveling whenever possible. Bought a motorbike.

This blog is meant to record what I learn along the way. I don't care if people read me but I would like to be helpful to others. If you read an article, I would like to know what you think about it.
