How we find clients in San Francisco, with Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit (CEO @ MarsBased)
The story of MarsBased can't be told without a city in particular: San Francisco.
Even though MarsBased started up in Barcelona, where the three co-founders are from and where most of the events pre-incorporation happened, San Francisco played a pivotal role.
In late 2013, Àlex quit his corporate job and left for a three-month trip to SF to soak up as much technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship as possible, and that's also where, among other things, Àlex found the first client for the company. That first client motivated us to incorporate the company and sped up the process of making MarsBased a reality.
Our CEO, Àlex Rodríguez Bacardit, explains why does he go every year to San Francisco and how he's built a brand and a network there throughout the years, from 2013 to 2023, through business development, friendship, and lots of burritos.
