Javier MegiasCo-founder & CEO
"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito" Dalai Lama
Javier loves learning new things and running, what we don't know is whether he runs to learn new things or if he learns new things when he runs. His biggest fear is getting old while not living his life to the fullest and not having left his mark on the world.
If he had 40 billions he would buy a lost island, and establish there a secret base where the top startups and entrepreneurs of the world would be covertly recruited and funded, in order to create a secret army that would peacefully conquer the world with talent, innovation and great business ideas.

His biggest passions are music, cooking and new ideas, and he's afraid of living a life without memories.
