Argentine entrepreneur Diego Saez Gil is a product developer, tech founder and innovator who most recently co-founded Bluesmart, a smart luggage startup he successfully launched on the back of a $2.2 million Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in 2014. Saez-Gil is a master of ideas: What he dreams, he goes on to create.
Saez Gil will be a featured guest at the upcoming FARM + LAND retreat in New York Sept. 8-10, offering his perspectives on technology, nature, and how the two can—and should—meet to conquer some of the planet’s most complex problems.
Diego’s central vision for what makes a successful company. “I think it must start with a purpose, a mission,” he told the Huffington Post. “Then products can change, markets can change, industries can change. But if you have a larger purpose the company will be resilient to those changes and will adapt to continue fulfilling its purpose.” The Stanford University Graduate School of Business alum has applied this vision to other companies, including founding travel startup WeHostels (since acquired by StudentUniverse), and serving as VP of Mobile at StudentUniverse.
