Pablo Martín Lozano
We worked together  •  Founder & CEO, Meetizer and Branding and Marketing Consultant, http://www.pablomlozano.com.
Mike has been helping us at Meetizer for several months and all I have to say is that he is a really good option if you are looking for a ta ... lented, professional and friendly business and finance mentor. His knowledge of everything related to startups and startup financing are a big value for you as a client and his work ethic and passion will help you become a better entrepreneur.
Veronica Torras
They're my advisor  •  Co-founder, Health Mavericks Accelerator and Creator, citric dashboard.
I have seen Michael taking fast decisions based on customer feedback data. I think this is an important skill for anyone who wants to be suc ... cessful in a business.
Francesco Sabato
They're my school  •  Co-Founder & CEO, EPO Ventures. Previously Project Manager, M&A, Gas Natural.
Great analytical mind combined with hands-on, operational capabilities. We partnered with Mike at his former ventures and he is now advising ... us on finance related stuff

Francesco Sabato
They're my school  •  Co-Founder & CEO, EPO Ventures. Previously Project Manager, M&A, Gas Natural.
Francesco has worked on past and current entrepreneurial projects in different capacities and has added great value to companies that grew s ... ignificantly from the time when he started with them to where they are current day. He is definitely a hungry, resourceful and perfectionist (in a good way) entrepreneur who has already accomplished a lot and still has many great successes to come! He is also highly analytical, intelligent, and thoughtful in his work on projects.

Pablo Martín Lozano
They're my advisor  •  Founder & CEO, Meetizer and Branding and Marketing Consultant, http://www.pablomlozano.com.
Pablo is a great visionary entrepreneur. He's developed the Meetizer application which has won many awards and was praised as truly differe ... nt and potentially disruptive in our last meetings with VCs. Pablo is highly driven, intelligent and analytical in the way he works as an entrepreneur and from how I've seen him as a person in general. I think Pablo will have great success as a technology entrepreneur and that it will happen much sooner than later. It's been a pleasure knowing and working with Pablo.

Pep Viladomat
They're my friends  •  Head Mentor & Guest Lecturer, IESE Business School and CEO and co-founder, Heywood & Sons.
Pep is a quite experienced entrepreneur who has had many successful projects and is working on at least one other currently. He is a very i ... ntelligent and analytical person who I have confidence will have continued success.

Thomas Roggendorf
They're my school  •  Co-founder and Executive Director, Ofertia. Previously 2012 Full time MBA, IESE Business School.
Thomas would be a great advisor because he has a lot of experience as a founder and leader of a very successful startup. He is very saavy i ... n the areas of financing and general management and leadership. He connects well with people and is very smart and knowledgeable about strategy.

Edgardo Adorno
They're my advisor  •  Co Founder - Strategies & Innovation, INNOI and Business Dreamer at Imagine, Imagine Creativity Center.
Edgardo is a very impressive entrepreneur who has had great success in his innovative startup Printsome. I imagine that what he has accompl ... ished so far is just the beginning in this venture and that more great things are to come. Edgardo is tenacious, thoughtful and communicative; but most of all he's a guy who goes and gets the job done. He's a great executer!

Jordi Romero
They're my friends  •  VP Business Development, Redbooth Inc. and Advisor and Board member, Itnig.
Jordi helped me in my last company in preparing our metrics and general growth strategy. He is a great coach who is very knowledgeable abou ... t (dare I say) most all marjor aspects of startups and entrepreneurship.

Veronica Torras
We worked together  •  Co-founder, Health Mavericks Accelerator and Creator, citric dashboard.
Veronica has worked on many projects as a co-founder, advisor, mentor, and possibly other things! She is also the leader of the Lean Startu ... p Circle for Barcelona; one of the largest startup groups we have here in Barcelona. Veronica is very smart with her recommendations she has given founders, including me, and she is very shrewd as to how she conducts herself as a founder as well. She will no doubt be having a great success one day soon.
