Digital Transformation: From Digital Pages to Digital DNA

As we finalize the first quarter of this year 2017, one tends to ponder about achievements so far and I get to realize how fast time goes by; not only this year precisely but, in fact, time in general and suddenly I remembered a phrase that one of my mentors once told me “Jose, remember and treasure this moment because as of right now we … Continue reading Digital Transformation: From Digital Pages to Digital DNA

The Year of Mobile Health

2016 was the year of various paradigms to be broken and, also, the year of foreseen-trends to become true and tangible.

Moments of Experience

Every day, we hear technology has reinvented itself and always there are some skeptical who feel we are at the dawn of a new apocalypse where machines take over humanity like the Skynet from Terminator. Moving away from any final Judgment days, we cannot avoid to realize that actually many new technological advances are slowly getting infiltrated in our daily lives, from flying drones for … Continue reading Moments of Experience

“E, M, L”, whatever letter before commerce is just commerce

If we think about the origin of the concept “commerce”, we see it dates back to 1530-1540 and it comes from a combination of Middle French and Latin languages in the form of “commercium” meaning “to trade together”. This concept stayed almost unaltered for centuries and it was only recently, in the last decades, that it suffered a mutation when a new “channel” was created … Continue reading “E, M, L”, whatever letter before commerce is just commerce

And for some reason, and believing or not in coincidences, the entrepreneur just happened to publish it on the very day it became a birthday present for my 6th cycle of 7 years.

Mobile is Everything: A part greater than a whole?

Back in 92-93, I was a foreign exchange student in San Diego (California) at Rancho Bernardo High School (a life changing experience for many reasons), when I first had a tête-a-tête with Prodigy (some kind of computer connected network). Back then, it was the early days of PCs and Macs, and for me it was still the days of evolving from BASIC to PASCAL programming … Continue reading Mobile is Everything: A part greater than a whole?

Bye Bello 2016 … Ciao Gorgeous 2017

This year has been particularly interesting as we met with various start-ups in Geo-location, O2O, Local Search and Delivery services, and it was clear that they all have a great product – there is no doubt – and they all tackled various problems with the willingness to conquer certain and specific market niches. However, despite the above, these entrepreneurs all suffered from, struggled with and … Continue reading Bye Bello 2016 … Ciao Gorgeous 2017

Aristotle or Darwin, but in the end it’s pure focus

Per what Aristotle said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”; a piece of an ecosystem cannot surpass in size the greatness of that very ecosystem. On a previous article at Venture Beat by guest author, Soeren Stamer, he basically questions whether the approach to business by THE two internet giants (Google & Facebook) is all wrong from a long-term standpoint. In … Continue reading Aristotle or Darwin, but in the end it’s pure focus
