What has been your biggest challenge in the last year? And your biggest learning?

Our biggest challenge was doubling our revenues from last year with the new B2B business line as the main growth driver. This was possible thanks to the whole team learning important change-management skills combined with great resiliency.

You have won the 4YFN Awards in Barcelona in 2018. What is the most exciting thing for you about your experience at 4YFN event?

Any advice for startups that are planning to apply for the 4YFN Awards 2022?

Have fun! I don’t believe there is any secret sauce. It’s probably more about being passionate enough to explain your project in a way that engages both the audience and the jury. In 2018 all contenders were great and I’m sure the 2022 edition will bring amazing projects and founders. Looking forward to it!
