👨‍🎤 Stickers

Together with Luise Freese, Elio owns a side hustle/business called Pimp Your Own Device. The company is all about stickers. Stickers are what makes you unique in the technology community. Some people refer to it as prison tattoos.

We find laptops just dull and want to spice them up with some sticker art. As there are many cool stickers available at conferences, it is not always easy for everyone to get them. That is what inspired us to start this business. We want to make it easier for everyone to get these cool stickers. Are you interested? Come and check us out at
