Tell us about yourself?
Team leaders and co-founders in the creation of MiExamen. My dreams are big because I have the skills to do them. Commercial engineer, with experience in project leadership and the ability to see the opportunity where others see problems.
What do you think is the single biggest misconception people have when it comes to startups?
Not communicating with the entrepreneurial environment and going out late to the market, seeking to come out with a totally finished product without having pivoted with clients.
If you could go back in time to any moment from your journey, and give yourself one tip, what would it be?
Understand that the journey is one of learning along the way, and I will not have all the answers when I first start.
What makes you stand out as an entrepreneur?
My superpower is blending nativity with enthusiasm. I think that my naivety helped me make the decisions and embark on a journey of continuous improvement, whilst my enthusiasm helps our team to continue working and inspiring us to improve our environment, even if that means changing everything.
What are some of the best working habits you’ve gained over the past couple of years?
One of the best-acquired habits I’ve found is to not leave anything for later.
Give us a bit of an insight into the influences behind the company?
MiExamen is the Airbnb of medical exams. It comes directly with the vision of transforming the experience of scheduling medical exams in Latin America, it allows you to know the price, location, and availability of your medical exams in real-time.
Where do you see your business in five years?
Being the Latin American medical exam scheduler, making the lives of 660 million inhabitants much easier.
What do you think the biggest challenge will be for you in getting there?
Like all disruptive technology, the market is not always ready to receive new technologies and adapt to them.
Talk to us about your biggest success story so far?
The best was our first sale, after months of developing our functional product after our MVP was a form with which we obtained more than 300 quotes. This gave us all the urge to go for more.
How do clients and customers find you? Are you much of a salesperson for yourself?
What one tip would you give to fellow startup founders?
Start early, don’t wait to have the most beautiful product to test your MVP; you will never finish improving your startup, but if you don’t pivot with people you will always be improving it for yourself and not for your clients.
And finally, what do you hope the future brings both you personally, and your business?
We hope to bring our solution to all of Latin America, and that scheduling exams will be as easy as choosing which hotel to stay at to go to the beach, choosing between the different options.
Personally, I hope to continue growing together with our team to be an increasingly united team.
