I remember the first moment I found out about Nacho’s project. It seemed very interesting and unique; something that nobody else was doing. Something that could be applied to different industries and places in an increasingly complex world where the importance of data grows day after day.
Datumize was founded in 2014, and Nacho worked nonstop as he is doing right now. My first days were different but also weird. I worked from home, since we didn’t have an office yet, and had meetings with Nacho to discuss our to-do list. Some weeks later we moved to our first office of a few square meters in Viladecans - at that time, enough space for two people.
Shortly after, the first version of the DDC arrived. The name was the result of a simple vote by Nacho’s friends, co-founders and ‘employees’, one in that case. And so the Datumize Data Collector was born: welcome DDC!
Then came the first client, the StartupBootCamp accelerator, 4YFN at the MWC, more public events, congresses, contacts, investment, flights, nights in hotels… lots of effort to grow the project. Me from the office and Nacho and the co-founders going up and down around talking with clients, looking for investors and so on. Everything was so interesting, and at the same time the first results were starting to come in. We received 1M euro in investment a few months ago. Now we are 13 employees in different areas. Datumize is hiring new people to join the project, so this thing is still growing.
