The mobile adventure: Bergen to Bangladesh @ First Tuesday Bergen

The mobile adventure: Bergen to Bangladesh

Jacobo will talk about the experience of building Hubii through a very slow start 7 years ago to the most recent events that have happened over the last 3 months; Many failed attempts, painful lessons, interesting anecdotes and once pivoting seemed to put our team on the right path we run out of steam to then get lucky. The idea is to present briefly what is Hubii, comment on the experience of building the company and have an interactive dialogue with the audience.

Jacobo Toll-Messia is the Founder and CEO of Hubii AS. Jacobo started with the idea 7 years ago of building a location-based news aggregator. He then assembled the team and, after many proof of concepts and failed test it seems that they have found the right market and partner. He has been a self-employed contractor most of his profesional life with a background in Software Engineering and Distributed Systems.
