What I enjoy at Startup Embassy is that everyday I expand our brand to, is one more opportunity to one of those enterpreneurs who want to make their dreams come true, living the experience of Silicon Valley.
Jordi Studied Advertising and International PR. Worked at some Digital Advertising Agencies (when there where non-digital agencies) and for some startups in Barcelona. Started a virtual wardrobe webpage in 2007 but failed before even launching. In 2011 founded 1sleeve.com, a very special iPad app and website to customize your iPad sleeve. With it, was selected for an Entrepreneurship program called Yuzz and won it in Barcelona, that took him for a week to Silicon Valley (’12) and visited many of the well-known tech companies. One year after that, was selected for the IMAGINE.cc program and took him again to Silicon Valley, this time, for a month. It was a life-changing experience. Visited IDEO, Google, Apple, NASA, met Singularity University Alumnus and Staff, and many more things that you can only live in Silicon Valley. After the IMAGINE Creativity program, moved to Palo Alto and joined forces with Carlos de la Lama-Noriega to found Startup Embassy. An engineer with bold ideas and a Creative with feet on the ground, what a team! Starting the house was a cultural, mind-opening experience that showed him the potencial of willing individuals and how empowering the Silicon Valley ecosystem is. Also in Silicon Valley, he incorporated 1sleeve Inc. and got some investment from an HP executive. The startup took him to advertise in Macworld magazine, partner with manufacturers, find a good lawyer, and the whole startup process. It was the greatest business experience he could have asked for. The company finally closed being back in Barcelona in 2014 He’s now back in Barcelona as an early-employee for a very innovative food packaging Company called Pick D Pack.
What I enjoy the most at Startup Embassy is the positive mindset of the entrepreneurs. I love the experience of going to bed having learned some practical lessons. Every single day a mountain is being climbed!

I believe that we all still need to challenge many orthodoxies in order to achieve all the things we want, things that make us competitive and give us more happiness as a result. This explains my engineering-business background and the reason why I’ve been in Silicon Valley since I graduated from college.
Startup Embassy is a life change experience where you meet lot of people that are creating something out of nothing. People how encourage you to follow your dreams and believe on creating your own way in life.
