I like to build new things and work with superbly talent. I founded my first company when I was 14. Prior to that I worked as Head of Speakers for Campus Party (the largest tech festival in the world) and worked with Latin Grammy awarded music band. After enjoying my teenager years, girls who broke my heart while I was writing love songs and even producing a radio show, I decided I wanted to focus the rest of my life learning new things.
When I was 15 years old, I started a music marketplace called Redondea. I also worked with some NGOs and non-profit organizations like WWB (Webmasters Without Borders), iWeekend or Iniciador Foundation. Just when I finished high school, at the age of 16, I had the opportunity to move to Silicon Valley to work on strategy consulting and venture capital with Solon Ventures. I invested in some companies and helped other to grow. As you may suspect, I never went to college, despite doing amazing at high school. I was learning a lot, and I stayed for slightly over 3 years.
I was very fortunate when ESADE Business School awarded me with an scholarship to pursue my full studies, despite not having a college degree. So I packed my bags and moved from San Francisco for a full year in Barcelona.
Then, I started Fever, the largest event discovery platform in the world. We change the way people discover and enjoy offline entertainment through real product engagement. We have one of the smartest teams in Europe and we are disrupting a fragmented industry. I love psychology, understanding how social dynamics work and studying all around how people merge together. We raised over $25m in funding, have over 150 team members and more than 5 million users.
Now, I spend my time investing at companies in early stage and working with other entrepreneurs.
For me, life is a continuous learning adventure and I enjoy starting projects and working with smart people. I do not stand negative people and I enjoy being part of great organizations, environments and ecosystems. And I try to make an impact. Ultimately, life is about being remembered and making sure that, once you leave this world, you left it better than what it was.
