Social Point shared entrepreneur’s knowledge at First Tuesday event

Yesterday @ First Tuesday event in Barcelona, took place the discussion board with Andrés Bou and Horacio Martos, founders of Social Point. The forum was moderated by Carlos Blanco, entrepreneur and investor who has been closely following the evolution of Social Point.
Andrés and Horacio explained their experience as CEOs of the company. Furthermore, they gave an inside of how the company was created and where the business idea came from.
Both participants reviewed the beginnings of Social Point, the difficulties they faced along the way, the changes they had to make, failures and successes, and one of the most important things- how they closed successfully three funding rounds.
Making Social Point a prosperous social company hasn’t been easy, Andrés and Horacio said, but gradually they started getting very positive results that allowed them to hire more employees. Since then, the founders realized one thing: “When talented people gather together, magical things happen”.

Chapter 4: The Return

Exhausted and sweaty, we all went to have a shower before the big Christmas meal was served. The corridor was crowded and shouts of victory were heard everywhere.
Before dinner everyone gathered in the house yard; some of us were singing songs while playing guitar and bongos. We also enjoyed talking about the great experience that we had just lived.

Chapter 3: The Final Battle

Once we reached the final battle, people started gathering around the ring, ready to encourage their favorite team.
When everything was ready, the first two contestants jumped on the inflatable stage. Our referee whistled and the weakest competitors started to fall from the stage one by one.

The count was 3 to 1 but then it got 3 to 3; the two groups tied and the game became much more exciting, 3-4, 4-4, 5-4, … Finally, the second team fell behind and lost all its possibilities. The die was cast and the best team won.

Chapter 2: The Adventure

During the amazing Gymkhana, all groups faced different types of Quests that would leave everybody stiff.
Some were struggling on the obstacle course, others tried not to receive many kicks in the human table football. Shouts of victory and defeat were mixed and heard everywhere. We participated in team building tests, where individuality had no place and all the members of the group had to stick toghether and achieve their goals joining their power. At the sack-race we saw entire groups falling to the floor and breathing dirt as real soldiers.

Chapter 1: The departure

As you know, last week we went to celebrate Social Point Christmas in a very unusual way. We spent two days in a holiday camp near Sitges. Before we got there, we knew that an awesome final prize was awaiting and that an incredible adventure was about to begin. Everyone was anxious and excited to know which prize was at stake.

Before leaving the office, the strongest boys loaded food, luggage and stuff onto the coaches. Stereo? Checked. Sleeping bags? Checked. Food? Checked. Drinks? Checked. We all were impatient and nervous. You could feel it in the air. Some were trying to guess the prizes (place your bets), others were finishing last minute work. We saw people going in and out of the rooms in silence. All was secrecy and excitement.
