Last February 29th was my last day at EOI, I leave behind more than a thousand days of experiences, friends and some of the best projects I have done, as is the case of Open Green at SIMO 2010.
I have been involved in projects that I enjoyed. We started by creating a relationship infrastructure for SMEs, we turned Redepyme around, which ended up being launched in that Open Green. We tried to make consulting something scalable and agile through the Follow-Ups; we launched three brands: the new Redepyme, Open Green and Emprendeoi; and we created the EOI Entrepreneurs Club or the Redepyme-Iniciador Investment Forum, among other initiatives.
We take the School to: Iniciador, Ellas 2.0, Betabeers, the Jornadas de eCommerce, Iniciador Kids, CEO-CF, Keiretsu Forum, Ecomm & Beers or iOS Bootcamp, among others.
I said goodbye to the School after launching the Design Company Courses, although I prefer to call them Design Company Courses, which mark, in my opinion, the line to be followed by this type of program in the 21st Century.
In March 2011, while I was drawing up the School's Entrepreneurship Plan, Startup Spain came out, as if by magic. Startup America nor Startup Britainbut only a few months earlier, Nicolas Shea had already created Startup Chile. At that time I thought that the project could be driven by the School, as a bridge between public and private initiative, but as long as Startup Spain was a bottom-up movement and not the other way around. Subsequently, I continued working to join forces towards an emerging National Entrepreneurship Plan, in which a year later I am still engaged in connecting the main actors of our National Entrepreneurship Ecosystem.
I leave satisfied and with more work than I would like, because I proposed to rest and, not by any means, I have done it in these two weeks that I have been away. I have many projects on the table, and much to my regret, I will have to say no to some of them.
Years ago I thought time was infinite. Today I believe that time is the only thing that limits us.
