Investor breaks down the five ingredients of his recipe for success in the tech ecosystem

His resume includes some essential references to the global tech ecosystem of the past 25 years: Idealista, Google, Flickr, Yahoo… and on all these scales, Bernardo Hernandez has distanced himself from an “obsession” to a lifestyle”. Swim often against the current of many. “They laughed at us when we launched Idealista”, shared this Thursday in the second edition of Sun & Tech, the co-founder of the ‘startup’ that has now become a reference in the real estate market and Here is an example of a small technique. -based company can scale spectacularly.

“What you are doing in Málaga is an example”, Hernández offered in the first leg of his talk at a technical forum organized by SUR in collaboration with Málaga City Council, Provincial Council, Caixabank, Málaga University, Medac and. Standby. Thus, Hernandez shares with the audience the five ingredients of his recipe to achieve success in the field of innovation in the auditorium of the provincial council. The first thing to do would be to choose a problem that affects as many people as possible, to find a solution and to present it to that audience. The second includes the ability to develop a “competitive technical advantage” from “the best, most scalable lines of code”. And here’s what he claims: “You can’t outsource it, it has to be your technology. You have to achieve technical excellence, being good isn’t enough”.

The third component has to do with “focus”; Namely, for Hernandez “the important thing is not what you do, but what you stop doing.” The investor and entrepreneur cites the case of Apple as an example, “which is valued twice as much as the Spanish economy with seven product lines.” For this reason, for Hernandez, “the important thing is who you say no to.” The fourth slogan refers to the business of investing “without fear” when the potential strategic benefits of these movements are obvious. And the fifth, perhaps a summary of all the previous ones, goes through the “work ethic”. Because, for Hernandez, all entrepreneurs take that path as a “life choice.” And he has confessed: «There is no balance between life and work. It’s a passion.”

change of era

And after several decades at the cusp of a wave of technology and investment, Hernandez sees the change of the era on the horizon. “Never before in history has man experienced changes of this magnitude. Because never before in history have machines helped us so much and never changed so much in such a short time”, said the president of Solon Inversions . To put that statement in context, Hernandez breaks down how the first great technological wave came with the development of computing in the 60s and 70s of the last century; According to his story, Artificial Intelligence and ‘Blockchain’, the second came with the popularity of the Internet and the third came as the protagonist. And both technologies will “change absolutely everything,” in Hernandez’s words.

“If you combine artificial intelligence and ‘blockchain’, I think we are facing another big wave of unprecedented change and more than the previous ones”, defended the president of Solon Inversions. In a subsequent conversation with SUR’s director, Manuel Castillo, Hernández encourages viewers to fall in love “with the problem, not with the solution” and once again seeks technology training, starting from an early age. The need is claimed so that, in future, those who are engineers will also become entrepreneurs.
