After being awarded with the Yuzz Young Entrepeneur prize, I got hooked on the strategy world. Living a couple of months in San Francisco and Palo Alto boosted our motivation, and shortly afterwards three mates and me funded our own startup. The main idea was matching entrepreneurs and investors. In 4 years we closed hundred of deals and opened new offices in Spain, Chile, and San Francisco.
Mi passion for programming and the opensource ecosystem made me join the ReactOS Foundation in 2007, being, this way, the first spanish member in the Board of Directors. In this international project I didnt just share my own knowledge but it helped me to grow from the strategy point of view.
Nowadays , I would be probably defined as an entrepreneur, a fashionable word. But, at that time, I had to heard the “waste of time” frequently. However I was defining it as “paving my own path”. The now, so called, differentiation.
Setting in motion new projects was not new for me.
I’d already funded thr Robotics Universitary Association (Esibot) and the IEEE Student branch in the Univeristy of Seville. Even something as different as funding the Seville Musical Theater Association ( ATMS)
My knowledge in technology, development, marketing and strategy let me to specialize in product strategies, comunication and operations for SAAS products or other technicsl platforms.
There are companies requesting me a second opinion or a strategic change to stand out from their competitors. Also being contactecby investors who are puzzled about why their investment in a refrigerator startup selling in the North Pole which looked as an amazing opportinity in that besutiful Prezi seems to not be as succesful as expected.
After all, we are the result of our own personal strategy.
