Hello dear reader!
Monday November 27th, was an extremely important day for me. I have received the Madrid Youth Entrepreneurship award (http://www.carnejovenmadrid.com/es/ventajas/otros-planes/iii-premios-talento-joven-carne-joven-comunidad-de-madrid,731). This award is aimed at people who have created projects that are pushing the boundaries of innovation and creating job posts. It is an immense pride to be the winner of this year’s edition and I will continue to work tirelessly to be worthy of this honour.
It is amazing to see how something that starts as an idea, turns into a full-fledged product that is used by millions of users. At the beginning, everyone thought we were crazy, that location sharing was never going anywhere. We have always argued the need of real time location sharing that expires after a certain time, always with an agreement from both parties, and with total security and privacy. Flashforward three years and we have been able to raise numerous investment rounds, acquire over 10 million users, expand all over the globe and see how other giants like WhatsApp, Google, Facebook and Telegram copy our model. Days like today prove that we are on the right track and we will continue to rocket Wave to the moon.
I would like to thank all the Youth Organization of Madrid, the council of Madrid and Wolters Kluwer for awarding me with this distinction.
