Sobre Javier Escribano

I'm a engineer who have always had an interest in business. Over the years I have developed an interest on design. You will agree with me that it's a good mix in order to lead a startup. After I finished Telecommunication Engineer at UPM and Information & Technology Management Master in Chicago, I started TouristEye (a travel planner app). Over the course of 4 years we built a team of 10 people, we iterated through several versions of our apps and our website, we tested different business models, we raised two rounds of investment, we reached 500.000 registered users and we entered into 500Startups. We ended up selling TouristEye to Lonely Planet, the biggest player in the travel guide sector, in 2013. Now, I'm planning to do a similar process with Selltag. Building a great team, iterating fast through our products, having a much bigger focus on revenue and scaling it as fast as we can. The sky is the limit this time. In parallel, I also help startups improving and simplifying their products and helping entrepreneurs improving their pitches.
