Madrid, Spain.

I am the co-founder and Chief Business Development Officer at 24symbols. There, I enjoy bringing a mix of product knowledge, biz dev and strategy, and travelling around the world talking about the present and future of books.

I was crazy enough to work on my Ph.D. while working in startups, so I'm proud to say I got it! I also hold a B.S. in Computer Science, and have had the immense fortune of receiving training in Product Management, Product Marketing, Innovation and Creativity at the universities of Stanford and Berkeley, CA.

Since founding a startup is seemingly not enough, I am also an associate professor at Nebrija University, at its Business School and at its Master´s Degree in Industrial Design, teaching IT Management, Creativity Techniques and Product Strategy and Innovation. I have been lucky to have interesting experiences in the corporate and startup world, I am also a mentor at Startupbootcamp, a European startup accelerator and Tetuan Valley, a startup school, both located in Madrid, Spain.
