Juan Verde, Advanced Leadership Foundation’s president, was recently interviewed by Gonzalo Castañeda, journalist from ES Radio Tenerife, in which they explored the differences between US and Spanish entrepreneurial business cultures.

During this interview, Mr. Verde talked about the entrepreneurial culture in Spain versus that in the USA. How someone, in the USA, whose start-up has failed is viewed as someone wise, who will not make the same mistakes once he continues on his entrepreneurial journey; versus how someone in Spain who has started a business and failed is viewed by society as a failure. Through both the Internship and Executive training programs the Advanced Leadership Foundation offers, it builds this sense of leadership and entrepreneurial values amongst its participants.  

This is also transmitted through Mr. Verde’s book, Soñar es poder, which is related to the Foundation’s mission to strengthen young professionals’ abilities and to make them the best version of themselves. As he mentioned in his interview: “successful people are all those who apart from having succeeded are also people who look forward to giving back to society.”
