Diego and I hit the ground running in San Fran this week.
This week felt like 3 weeks in boot camp. Thanks to the following great mentors we made some flying leaps:
-Marcelo Diaz (our awesome incubator, MD of IncubaUC)
-Hiroshi Wald (MD of Austral Capital)
-Humberto Matsuda (Managing partner @ Performa Investimentos)
-Christian Barbosa (serial entrepreneur and best selling author)-Mike Sigal (founder Agile Credit, mentor @ 500 Startups)
-Professor John Danner ( Senior Fellow, The Lester Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, at Haas Business School, UC Berkeley)
-Christopher Ireland (Co-founder of Mix & Stir Studios)
-Sam Zebarjadi (mentor @ Iron Yard and Four Athens)
Thank you guys you rock!
Through the amazing mentorship we identified how to leverage the huge value of Fundacity’s future user base (talented LatAm startup designers and developers). Fundacity is going to address the burning appetite for tech talent in both North and South America. We plan to make this a scalable model by avoiding the need for headhunters and instead using social validation as a tool to find the talent you need. With headhunter fees sky high this is a sexy market to tap into. we LIKE!
However, we are still looking out for other scalable ways to monetize the valuable and transactional user base of Fundacity.com.
