Hi folks,

Happy New Year! We are back, from a couple of months of silence, to meet Carlos Hernández (@polimorfico (https://twitter.com/polimorfico)), CEO at Quaderno (http://getquaderno.es/) and Quaderno.io (https://quaderno.io/).

He has over 14 years of internet project experience, specializing in agile development, digital design, and entrepreneurship. Come to hear his history and meet him!

Creating a startup in the periphery

Let's talk about the periphery. In the startups world, Europe is a peripheral area under the shadow of the US. And Spain is a peripheral area of Europe. And the Canary Islands are the most peripheral area of Spain. So people think there's nothing in these islands, but sand and volcanos. However, that's the place where I decided to create my small company. 100 years ago it would be just impossible. But today the world is not the same, and we all have access to the same resources, the same knowledge, the same global market. And this is changing the periphery.

I'd like to tell you the story of a tiny bootstrapped project that was born in the periphery, and has now customers all around the world. It's a story of common places: a coffee shop, a beach, a promenade… It's a story of good and bad moments. It's a story of hits and mistakes.

See you on the 13th!

Carlos Hernández
