In this episode I talk to Lucas Olmedo, founder and CEO of Fligoo. You can listen to it on Spotify and other podcast apps.

Fligoo is a global technology company established in San Francisco in 2013. With more than 7 years of experience in Advanced Analytics and Decision Science, Fligoo develops intelligent solutions based on a proprietary algorithm framework used by global leaders in the Financial Services, FMCG, and Retail industries. With offices around the globe in San Francisco, New York, Sao Paulo and Cordoba, Fligoo is currently one of the fastest growing Artificial Intelligence companies in the world.

In this episode, we deep dive in his trajectory. We talk his upbringing in Argentina, his decision to move to San Francisco, and the challenges he's facing while building Fligoo.

In the episode, I asked him questions such as:

  • At one point, you decided to move from Argentina to San Francisco because the local market there was too small. How was that decision?
  • One of your partners is from Peru. You have multiple Brazilian employees. And offices in San Francisco, New York, and London. How did building a globally diverse company from day one influenced your thinking?
  • San Francisco is great because of the people who live there. However, that comes with a cost. Hiring is more expensive, the best employees have multiple offers, and the rent and cost of living are high. Did you ever regret moving to San Francisco?

I hope you enjoy the episode as well.
