“You will come through with a clearer project and a stronger focus on results and market response. Taking part in Explorer is an enriching process, not only for the actual project, but also for its founders as people and as professionals.”

Paloma Martín

“My biggest take-away from Explorer were my peers, the different groups that came together. I love the synergy that builds up within the team and with peers from all across Latin America, from Spain...”

“Before entering Explorer, the truth is I was struggling to start something. What you really have to do is get out there, start networking, share your ideas, welcome feedback and give it your all.”

Amin Mansouri

“I saw it as an opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship, go back to my university and get my solution validated quickly. The best thing about the programme was the training in different fields, from the entrepreneur’s personal development to marketing or finance.”
