Ferrando, Carlos

Member Board Of Directors at Asociacion Valenciana de Startups

I’ve been blessed with the chance of working for great companies where they’ve always relied on the business development skills. I’m now pushing them to the limit by means of this ambitious project through which I’m aiming to set a worldwide trend in the use of bicycle helmets, in conjunction with a go-getter team.

Closca is the result of a thorough market research about the future of urban mobility, our passion for bikes and a self-creation that has become a reality.

Once I’ve left the comfort zone and overcome my fears, I’m confident I can continue creating new products for the market that will help other people and generate profit for those who rely on me and offer their commitment.
