Plenty of people think that building a Tech Hub in a different place is simply a matter of recruiting people providing them with a fancy laptop and great perks. Nothing could be further from the truth! 😅

According to Nico González, Engineering Lead at FREE NOW, it is besides the above, making **trillion** mistakes and learning from them reacting on time. 💪 💪
