Have won and lost. Have had every nervous tick known to mankind, and survived. Can add perspective to startups that usually lack it due to normal inexperience.
First StartUp went from $0 to $3mm in under 3 yrs in Chile and sold succesfully in 2000. Then built first Cloud Computing startup in 2001 but market wasn't ready. In 2007 became the first Google Partner in Latam and currently are top 20 worldwide with 5 offices running and 4 more to come.
