Co-Founder/CEO @ Babelverse

Co-Founder/CEO of Babelverse (Startup Chile, 500  Startups & SV Angel have backed Babelverse somewhere  along our journey!) He is currently based in the  international and truly Babelverse city that is London (also  his hometown).
Very experienced in user experience and accessibility, it’s something I think should be at the forefront of any decision. If we’re to take the web forward its capabilities must be accessible to all members of society.

Mayel de Borniol186f94fd29104cb8bd1e603be95a9430
Co-Founder & Architect @ Babelverse

He’s been hacking together websites, apps, and online communities since the mid-90’s, and building startups for almost 10 years. The Babelverse team are real adventurers, award-winners (LeWeb, TheNextWeb, TechCrunch Disrupt), with experiences over multiple continents which include but are not limited to: flying to Silicon Valley with no return ticket (and no money to buy one), crashing on random people’s couches for months on end until near-homelessness, and finally getting an investment from one of the biggest VCs in Silicon Valley.

Startup Weekend is coming back in town!

Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures.

All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.

Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a co-founder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!
