Raúl Sánchez is an experienced entrepreneur from Spain who has been running his business for the past 13 years. He is the CEO and founder of the architecture and design studio Raúl Sánchez Architects. Raúl learned about the programme and decided to participate with the goal of discovering new tools and potential. For four months, he became a mentor to Paolo Burattini, a young entrepreneur from Italy. He works as an architect and wants to start his own architecture studio, learning from close up how to manage not only the marketing aspects but also the more practical ones. For this reason, he decided to participate in the programme as a Young Entrepreneur, in order to acquire the necessary knowledge to achieve his goals, working alongside a very experienced entrepreneur in his sector.

During the exchange, Paolo had the opportunity to follow a project from scratch, acting as project manager and following both the design concepts and the construction site to the end, gaining a vast experience on the subject that he can later apply in his future business. He also gave back all his knowledge in the latest architectural programs (REVIT and 3DS), teaching Raúl and his team how to work with them.



Both Paolo and Raul have benefited from this programme. On the one hand, the programme equipped Paolo with the right knowledge and the empowerment to start his own architecture business, and he gained some important networking contacts. On the other hand, thanks to Paolo’s knowledge, Raúl discovered new tools and opportunities he had never heard of.
