Circular Economy

I am a Canarian entrepreneur in love with eight wonders, the Canary Islands.

My academic training as an industrial engineer and my professional experience as an expert in digital transformation and circular economy have a clear objective: to diversify the Canarian economy through the knowledge of the University and the culture of the islands.

This has led me to win the award for the best business idea in the north of Gran Canaria and to be in second place at national level for entrepreneurship by the Santander Bank.. I am trying to ensure that the Canary Islands export to the world a knowledge that makes both companies and society benefit from the most abundant Canarian raw material, which is none other than natural fibres made from banana tree waste.

Since I was a child I have been chasing the same dream: to make the Canary Islands even bigger by creating a sustainable industry that leaves our incredible landscapes clean.
