I have been building businesses for over 10 years and I have to say that entrepreneurship is like learning to surf. Before catching a good wave you will fall many many times. It is part of the process and I find it necessary. After all,...

The interest rates are very low. So many of you ask me for advices for investing in startups, so well I have decided to answer them all at once writing a post. I know, you have heard if you have good luck investing it could mean...

To me Intrapreneurs are the big-time forgotten in the business world, I put my two cents to give them the notoriety they deserve. I will start with an everyday story that many of you usually live: You are everywhere, you are people that work hard, giving...

I recognize I am an irreparable reoffender! After the success of 5 types of entrepreneurs I have launched myself pitiless against investors. Let’s not fool ourselves, as much as we paint them as perverse and evil, we need entrepreneurs, without them companies like Apple, Dropbox, Skype,...

I have never liked stereotypes, but if they exist it is for a reason. In all these years as an entrepreneur, mentor and consultant I have seen that we can fit people in certain types of profiles where, as bad as it sounds, in some...

After 4 years of intense dedication, I am announcing the end of my phase at Zyncro. As the Parana Investment Fund has entered the board, next Monday Carlos Ramón whom I have worked with for the past 9 months and is executive at the Fund will take over the CEO role. Best of luck, Carlos!

On the 9th of October at 11:15 I will be taking part of the "Bootstrapping in the South" Panel that is part of the South Summit. The South Summit is one of the leading startup conferences in the South of Europe where the best talent from the Mediterranean and Latin America meet the leading investors. Southern startups are many times underestimated compared to their Northern counterparts and I feel positive about events like this bringing the light to teams with brilliant ideas and business strategy. 

I am very happy to see Zyncro Tech for a second consecutive year on Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace. We have been working hard for this and appreciate the recognition from the analysts. "Zyncro offers a comprehensive on-premises or cloud-based suite of capabilities that goes far beyond social collaboration to include support for document repositories, electronic forms, tasks, real-time collaboration, location awareness and sophisticated support for Web accessibility. Zyncro also offers customized solutions based on its technology, which have attracted some large customers looking for tailored sales support or recruitment applications." says the report. We will keep the hard work and aim at improving year after year. 

Last week I was invited to the event Active Venture Partners Family Day. As keynote speaker we had Ashley Ward.  Ashley is a well know top manager, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and extreme mentor. As a seven times CEO over 26 years with four public offerings behind him, he...

As I am writing my first book on entrepreneurship, and I was looking for historical references, I found true inspiration in Christopher Columbus. Not Richard Branson, Bill Gates or Steve Jobs. They do deserve admiration without any doubt but they had the facilities and knowledge of modern society and the financial infrastructure. Columbus, on the other hand, started his project at a time when the Earth was considered flat, and had very little resource to argument the potential of his travels.
