Since the age of 5, I have systematically achieved every goal I set for myself and by today I am a responsible adult with my feet firmly planted on the ground, capable of fulfilling any commitment with determination, resilience and always giving back.

Licuick

Licuick was a pioneering delivery app, applied to F6S.  We built this startup during a time when Uber Eats had not yet penetrated the Latin American market, making it a blue ocean opportunity.

The project successfully reached the commercialization stage and secured a few clients. However, it ultimately faced failure due to the lack of payment gateways capable of enabling split payments between merchants, couriers, and Licuick. This limitation affected the scalability of the business, so we shut it down.

Singularity > Clean energy

James, a forward-thinking entrepreneur passionate about clean energy, set out on an extraordinary mission to transform the industrial landscape. His innovative idea? Tapping into the boundless power of ocean waves to generate clean and sustainable energy. Despite his proposal not being accepted into the program, James dedicated countless hours to developing and refining his concept, along with a comprehensive commercialization plan.

Spartug

James made a courageous decision to depart from his home country and embark on a new chapter in Cali, Colombia, with the ambitious venture of Spartug, as a requirement to receive the venture capital investment, he embraced the challenges that awaited him. Despite facing financial constraints and living on a modest $500 salary, James remained resolute in his pursuit.

Throughout the journey, the Spartug project encountered a formidable obstacle – the language (English required) barrier in the region, which hindered effective product commercialization. Despite their best efforts, finding a viable solution proved elusive. It became evident that the team’s focus on product development overshadowed the crucial aspect of comprehensive marketing strategies.

While the Spartug project ultimately met an untimely end, James’s unwavering determination and resilience demonstrate the true spirit of an entrepreneur. This journey serves as a testament to the lessons learned and the transformative power of setbacks, shaping James’s professional growth and refining his understanding of the intricate dynamics of business.

James’s story exemplifies the dedication and adaptability required in the entrepreneurial landscape. It is a testament to his ability to convert challenges into stepping stones for future success, as he emerges stronger, wiser, and prepared for new ventures on the horizon.

Status: closed due to the lack of commercialization and a language barrier in the region (Cali, Colombia).

Registro de mascotas

At the young age of 18, I successfully coordinated international business operations with China through Alibaba. Utilizing Alibaba, I connected with various suppliers, including those for packaging design, QR code creation, and collar chips. Additionally, I personally developed the web platform and app. Achieving sales of more or about one thousand dollars was a significant milestone for me at the time, I even personally conducted home deliveries using my own motorcycle. I will always remember those days.

First touch

I embarked on the development of a 3D application —a game, to be precise (check the video, for the year it was very promising better FPS than big companies’ products). It held immense promise and marked the beginning of my journey in the world of technology. I started with Delphi 7 and Pascal, flash studio, and others. I took my first steps, gradually progressing through several low-level programming languages. In those youthful days, I would barely sleep for four hours, driven by an insatiable urge to program endlessly.
