In the last year, the startup has tripled its sales and increased its client base six-times over.
“Over the past 18 months, we have learned and matured as a team in a difficult and demanding situation. We have been resilient and fortunately managed to build a stronger company in such challenging times while supporting our customers as much as possible,” said Fabián Gómez Gutiérrez, founder and CEO.
