Pedro became an entrepreneur when he was still in high school and by the time he had finished college he had created an event, marketing and sales platform which would go on to boast Forbes 2000 Global companies, including Amazon, Coca-Cola, Santander, Unilever and more!

Pedro talks about the importance of resilience in business, why market fit is the key indicator of a company's success, how he utilises content marketing as well as growth in the tech space.
