Previously on @jmcobian‘s life…
Former management consultant with high international experience across various industries.
I was Co-Founder of Scarafaggio, an online community of graphic designers, artists and independent musicians with a passion for t-shirts. Also, I pride myself to have been a partner and startup advisor at Okuri Ventures, part of the founding team of Startupbootcamp’s European expansion and, most of all, CEO of Europe’s first not-for-profit pre-accelerator program for startups, Tetuan Valley.
On today’s episode of @jmcobian‘s life…
Currently, I am the Country Manager for Spain at HotelTonight, one of the most exciting fast-growing mobile-only startups that has come out of Silicon Valley and the Bay Area and the most exciting thing that has happened to the Travel industry since the inception of online booking platforms.
I love a challenge especially if presented by a new innovative technology product that is simple, beautiful and useful, I’ve always loved to travel but I hate planning my trips, I love to be spontaneous and through my Management Consulting years I developed a bit of crush for hotels that really allow you feel at home away from home even if it is just for one night. Mix all those factors up on a nice refreshing cocktail and you will see why joining this amazing company was not only a no-brainer but a opportunity I was not willing to pass on. Having the opportunity join such a talented team to lead the launch of the HotelTonight brand, product and service in my native country is both an honor and a great responsibility and challenge. So, if you care to join me in this ride, get ready for a trip of a lifetime.
On other terms, I’m always interested in meeting entrepreneurs launching exciting new ventures on the Mobile, Software and Internet arenas. Always happy to help out in any way I can but fair warning: I have put all my investment activities to rest to concentrate on HotelTonight so if you are looking for money you are probably not in the right place.
That said, I am always happy to give a helping hand to entrepreneurs with an exciting project at hand. If you feel like I can be of any help, do not hesitate to shoot me a DM on Twitter or write me via LinkedIn.
Besides all things entrepreneurship-related, I am interested to anything related to technology, great music, guitars, bass, ukeleles, concerts, festivals, good food, restaurants, interesting conversations, movies, TV series, art… and many more.
