Alejandro first learned about the EYE programme from Alex Frias whom he met at the International Symposium on Youth Employment Challenges conference in Türkiye
. Alex became Alejandro’s first Young Entrepreneur when he came with the idea to expand RebelBase
Alejandro brought him on board and Alex dedicated his exchange to
attending conferences, networking,
and finding a RebelBase client. He succeeded when he closed a university
subscriber in Barcelona: Tecnocampus.
Tecnocampus became one of RebelBase’s
first customers. An entrepreneurship professor at the university used our
toolkit with her class of undergraduates.
with Tecnocampus continues, as it participates in an international
entrepreneurship course funded by the Open Society University Network.
Tecnocampus was one of five university partners that collaborated on the course
at the end of 2020.
This was Alex’s crowning achievement, and
when he returned to Spain, his professional relationship with RebelBase
continued. He became RebelBase’s Head of Global Business Development,
responsible for leading sales efforts outside of the U.S.
Overall, the Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs
programme has proved to be a tremendously valuable source of talent for
Alejandro and his company, RebelBase.
The programme has fueled RebelBase's growth by
lasting the relationships that had been built with ambitious and intelligent
young people. All these exchanges have made meaningful contributions to the
company. Without EYE, the company would not have managed to expand into the European
market in such a successful way.
