José Antonio Rodríguez
About José Antonio
I’m a Chilean/Italian/Spanish. I'm a cofounder of Purplu, a startup accelerated by Wayra from Telefonica Open Future. I'm passionate about technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
I've lived in Kiel, Berlin, Madrid, Barcelona, London, and Santiago. I've worked in different jobs in several industries and countries. I've founded some tech startups in the past (Duuin) and I'm always looking for opportunities in digital business such as marketplaces, e-commerce, SaaS, social media or any disruptive idea in which I could be a good asset.
I love design&architecture because of my family company Chilesüd.
I love coffee too. In the old days, I did a master in customer service&psychology and learnt how to prepare the best Caramel Macchiato in a genuine Italian manual coffee machine @ Starbucks (London, Notting Hill Gate).
I love to travel and I like a lot to work and share with enthusiastic people.
