Darío Rodríguez

My first steps in technology were a long time ago as a kid when I removed some keys from a keyboard to write my name with them. My other passion is business. I love to know all aspects of a company and how it works I’ve been working for technology companies for more than 10 years now, which has been like a dream come truth. On my day to day I try to take the projects I work on to the next level applying latest technologies and adding value to business based on a pragmatic approach.

Nuño López

After more than 12 years as CTO, CPO or CMO at Coches.com (recently acquired by Grupo Santander) Nuño says such intelligent things that they seem like good ideas, even to him.
 
He has not wasted time and has worked for investment funds and startups, as an advisor and consultant for more than 6 years. Hundreds of students have had to endure him as teacher and director in different business schools, and as an entrepreneur; he has been a winner and a loser in almost equal parts. Being Madrid born however – his humility stands out: “If I were a little better, I would become my own hero”.
 
He teaches others what he has seen, heard and learned, during his C-level and consulting stages. Within his deep cynicism, he thinks about how important healthy and unconventional communication is for the improvement of both personal and work productivity. This is something that he has implemented in Coches.com, and in several dozen companies as a consultant.
