    Enosis Technologies
    (Digital observatory)

     
    CEO - Cofounder
     
    In 2011, I began to give shape to a technological observatory to shed light on internal and external communication. In 2015, I formed a company with more partners, around a product that we did not know how to commercialize properly, even having more than 10,000 users and the Basque Government as a client (Innobasque, Basque Global Network).The world of business and partners is complex. In March 2018, I materialized my operational division of this project. Along the way I learned to get rid of bussines-angels who turned out to be demons, gurus who turned out to be smoke-sellers and executives who did not execute anything. I learn also from the errors.

    Esclavas de la Eucaristía
    (Religious institution)

     
    CDO / CIO / CTO
     

    From September 2008 to March 2018 I worked for the Institution and its schools in Spain, Portugal, South America, Africa and Asia, facing the responsibility of digitizing them "from top to bottom", that is, going from 0 to 100 coordinating people, schools, teams, projects, their social realities, speeds, educational contexts, languages, etc ...

    incredibly different from each other, around the same educational project, in technology.

    A positive and enriching experience: ten years working, ten years growing up.

    Maristas Bilbao
    (School)

     

    CDO / CIO / CTO

     

    From September 2004 to August 2009 I worked at the school "Maristas Bilbao" (2-18 year-students), as head of IT and as a teacher of 1st year of high school (11st grade)

    I started the ICT project of the school where I had studied 10 years ago. An honor.

    Hard work, intense, exciting ... something without a doubt in what had to be involved and put soul, heart and life. I also participated in the ICT team of the Iberian Marist province. I keep great memories.

    They were wonderful years that I will always remember with affection, for what I displayed, what I learned, and for the people I worked with.

    Simm Computers
    (networks and services)

     
    CEO - Cofounder
     
    From absolute zero, on April 1, 1997, while still a university student, I started up "Simm Computer"s, the first IT company in Astrabudua, my little neighborhood with my partner Sara Bravo and an excellent team (Ainara, Alazne, Vero, Roberto, Sergio, Ritxar, Txus, Delia, Esther, etc ...)
    We gave auditing, consulting, services and support to dozens of companies from all sectors.
    We lacked experience with the energy and illusion of age. And with many hours of study and dedication.
    My work will always be based on that experience. I hope never losing that illusion of the beginnings ...

  • In parallel

    ... In my blog "consejosvendo.com" I write about how technology and how we use it is changing our lives, our day to day, our present and our future. I try to express simple reflections from experiences I have had in my work with users, servers, platforms ... and my vision of robotics, electronic commerce, technological trends, new educational methodologies related to computers, etc.

     

    In mid-February of 2017 I was asked to speak on the radio about educational innovation, technological infrastructures in schools, 1x1, teacher training ... in Herri irratia - Radio Popular. First experience I try to translate, with the greatest humility, my knowledge about these realities. I have collaborated on more occasions, they have always been interesting experiences.
