Para un emprendedor digital, para un ejecutivo del área Tech, ir a San Francisco y al “Bay area” es como para un Católico irse al Vaticano en Jubileo y es un viaje que debería ser obligatorio o por lo menos recomendado en muchas empresas.

Os paso la agenda de actividades en marcha esta semana allí (en SFco): como veréis hay muchas actividades “free” mientras otras cuestan algunos dolares al estar esponsorizadas. Fijaos en los speakers y me entenderéis cuando os hablo de generosidad e impacto.

Cada semana de las 54 que hay en un año, el panorama es muy parecido: Agosto, un mes “olvidado” para el trabajo en Europa (en Ibiza no) es un mes bullicioso de actividades en Sfco (y uno de los más fríos del año).

Animaos por favor, antes que Trump levante más muros.

Abrazos,

Antonio
