Eddie lives in Medellín, Colombia, considered one of the most innovative cities in the world. Here he co-founded ESPACIO, a co-working space, which would later become an incubator, with the aim of promoting entrepreneurship in Medellín. Since the beginning of his time with Espacio, he has been involved in the development of the technology and startups scene in the city: organizing events, participating in evaluation panels, tutoring and doing everything possible to spread the word about the city that now he calls: Home.
He is also president and co-founder of Publicize, a public relations firm focused on helping startups achieve media coverage. He is proud that Publicize is a flexible and profitable alternative compared to traditional public relations companies, because Publicize was built by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Eddie is proud to participate in the growth of the company, as it has expanded to a larger office and a team of more than 75 people. The range of service offerings has also been diversified to accommodate a wider range of business needs while maintaining our base focused on startups.
