Mallorca Tech Stories
New installment of our Mallorca Tech Stories, which, as you already know, are about stories from our community’s technological ecosystem. A section in which we chat with people who have launched personal projects, large companies, community leaders or people who simply have an interesting personal story. As this newsletter clearly shows, in our islands, there are interesting stories to tell, which deserve to be known and unfortunately do not arouse enough interest in the general media.
This time we chatted with Germán Vidal who, together with Jordi Ber, has launched Apprentium, an online school for the construction sector. Despite having been running for only a few months, they already have 9 courses produced, 25 more in the pipeline and they have more than 1,000 users registered on their platform.
In addition, it shares in a fairly detailed way how they have launched the business following the Lean Startup methodology. Spending few resources, validating hypotheses and betting on what works. A super inspirational testimonial for anyone launching a business, thinking of doing it, or just interested in the topic.
