Keynote by Raúl Jiménez
Raúl Jiménez is the founder of Mi Nube, a platform whose objective is to share the places that people discover on their trips to any place on the planet. The platform allows you to save these places to inspire other people when they organize their trips.
During his interesting keynote Raúl indicated that “for 99% of startups there is no quick success, it is essential to think long-term and that your decisions are aligned”. He also added that “we are in a changing environment and the first ideal idea of the business model can pivot. What is essential is that it is on a good basis. ”
