Mallorca Tech Stories
We have spoken with Tomeu Fiol. Tomeu is a really restless person; he is currently CMO of the startup Hotelinking; manages Turisme Petit, an important blog on family tourism, has published a book about the cinemas of Mallorca … and during the pandemic he has been working on the launch of ChronoMask, an app to measure the usage time of coronavirus masks.
His interview is an impressive guide for anyone who wants to launch a project, be it an app or anything else. He shares all the strategies they have tried to publicize the app and acquire users, how the prototyping process was, the tools they use to manage the project and what plans they have for the future.
