During this time, he worked in management consultancy (strategic due diligence and technology innovation for semiconductor manufacturing, IoT, and wearable computing for Japanese blue-chip companies specializing in the B2B sector), and in global human resources and organizational strategy (Mitsubishi Corporation). He is an avid amateur cook and holds his MBA from Madrid’s IE Business School with a specialization in global management and entrepreneurship.
