- Introduce yourself shortly.
I’m a 33 years old Mexican entrepreneur, studying for the first semester in MBA in Digital Society.
- How did you decide to come and study in Europe?
I was looking forward to being up to date in business model matters in an affordable European country in order to build a startup. While I was doing a research about it, I found out that Estonia is the number one hub for entrepreneurs in Europe and the bureaucracy there works smoothly. Digging deeper, I found out the Estonian Business School has this unique MBA so it made total sense for me to come here.
- What’s the biggest difference between Estonia and Mexico?
Of course the population and size of the country, thus it creates a well-organized city like Tallinn whereas Mexico is literally a chaos.
- Tell us three facts about yourself.
BALANCE AND CONNECTION SEEKER
TACO LOVER 😉
- What’s the best thing you like about Estonia?
The weather …. Just Kidding! The best thing are the people, I found out so far that Estonians are well-educated, highly motivated and willing to share. In addition, they enjoy being great connectors & collaborators. PS. They do smile and do it a lot. 🙂
- Share with us an awkward moment that you have experienced.
Waiting for 20 minutes for the waiter to come and ask for my order in a restaurant until I realized that I had to go up to the till myself. We do have more waiters in Mexico, so it’s not my fault.
- If you could be an animal which one would you choose?
A Lion that symbolizes strength and leadership.
- If you could own any company of the world which one would you choose?
I would say Virgin Group. That way I could travel to Space with Virgin Galactic and own a private Island.
- What are your plans after EBS?
My plans are to continue growing my actual business in Mexico and build a start-up based in Estonia and I expect the latter to be live by the end of my Master degree.
