This is the video of "The Red" and CNN + Cuatro emtió that last week and which appear briefly Yago Arbeloa , Angel Maria Herrera , Joshua Novick and I, chatting about the Association of Internet Investors and Entrepreneurs ( IAIA ) Born Investors and Entrepreneurs Association of Internet (IAIA) Last week at a press conference at the Club Financiero Genova, we present the Association of Investors and Entrepreneurs Internet (IAIA).
The Association consists of: Yago Arbeloa Coca , Eneko Knorr , José Antonio Paunero Ortiz , Angel Maria Herrera, Ismael El-Qudsi and myself
The truth is that we have a few months to mature the idea, and as you can see on the Association website these are some of the goals that we have set: - Support for entrepreneurs who start their journey, selecting projects worked with Business Plans, performing one free consulting work in the form of monthly meetings with partners in which, with his knowledge, advise on business models, target audience, SEO, technology infrastructure, content, forms of monetization, etc.. - Play the role of external technical advisory board of companies and organizations from all walks. - Helps entrepreneurs in search of resources and funding rounds. - Link between the political and the Internet entrepreneurs and investors. - Investment Partners in a mix of capital and industrial contribution: SEO, hosting, visibility, networking, development, consulting, etc. - Monthly meals associated with people relevant to investment and enterprise level.

But that is not new and already thinking 5 or 10 years ago, the problem is not reached, there is little cultural initiatives related to internet culture in general; symbolic in Spain and almost nonexistent in Latin America. Sad but true. Investors, projects and the "attack on niche markets" as fashion and in order of importance economically, are to blame for delaying my cultural projects that could be very interesting and even more dynamic movements cultural, but today at the enterprise level would not be profitable and feasible in a country like Spain, where that cultural consumption is low. We are in a country where you hear a lot of music (which rarely purchase), in which the rate of book sales is low, and where despite having two of the major art museums in the world ( Museum Prado , and in contemporary art and the avant MNCARS ) when one visits them often "almost" the only Spanish there. One of those projects is the merit of Angel Maria Herrera , who ate the last week at the Club 31 in Madrid (incidentally, the very traditional restaurant that has earned the 5 cucharetes who have given ). Bubok , draft Angel Mary, born as an alternative publishing desktop publishing and transplanting emulating the model of Lulu to the Spanish market.
First is a romantic and ambitious project especially long term, and secondly offers unexplored possibilities for the future, not only for self-publishing authors, but especially for reprint edition print works and hundreds of publishers that no way to get by the high cost of printing and distributing series. All that will come and Angel Maria have taken credit for a space of privilege and have opted for the online literary world when neither the publishers have done yet, something that we would not have dared many. The entrepreneurial project culture in Spain, especially if it gets funding and conducts, is a dreamer brave, or crazy, or a freak. I have no doubt that Maria Angel is neither a madman nor a freak. I knew him personally for over a year, I remember we ate on the occasion of the book he published " 15 years of Internet in Spain "with Jorge Villabona in publishing Owl Group , wanted to talk to me and hear my whole story and then had the detail devote one long chapter of the book to tell my adventures with the great characters of the new technologies in Spain and Bernardo Hernandez , Luis Abril, Jesus Encinar , Carlos Blanco , Emilio Marquez , Ismael El-Qudsi , Jesus Monleon , Sixto Arias , Javier Martin or Carpintier Rodolfo , among others. It has always seemed a very sensible and has a professional profile and very curious, you see a person who has concerns and has done many different things in life and a clear commitment by the cultural background. Adding to all this entrepreneurial spirit and the ability of conviction has to surround himself with brilliant people on an advisory board and convince investors get the likes of Sequoia, Europa Press, El Grupo Intercom, Andreu Teixedor and Caja Navarra. Le desire for truth that goes well Bubok adventure, that in different markets, have similarities and reminds me in some things our draft Yes.fm and would love, as we talk about music and literature, literary and music industry, which someone of importance and a serious project is encouraged with the other major leg of culture and one of my great passions, art. If that project finally comes, call me I do not wanna miss it and would love to participate.
