About Me

I’m Beñat Galdós (I’d rather be called Benny abroad because of pronouncing issues), a Double Major in Computer Engineering and Business Administration, and I am the founder of Galde, an entrepreneurial project that started with my 2 majors’ capstone projects. If you want to visualize me, here I am:

This is me!

So, I’ll be writing these short reflections as a hobby, as I find it a bit dumb to write this kind of stuff wasting paper (and, maybe, even somebody will read these posts!). But well, I will leave the eco-nazi speech for the moment.

If anyone wishes to write down comments, feedbacks… in whatever I write, I’m open to suggestions, as I think I can learn from almost every situation in this life (except for obvious troll comments). And, in fact, if anyone is so really bored and wants me to write about a specific topic, don’t hesitate to send me a private message via “Contact” and I’ll consider whether I have an interesting opinion to reflect about it or not.

Global Shapers Bilbao

The Global Shapers network is a network of young people in their 20s, created by the World Economic Forum, which aims to build a world where young people are central to solution building, policymaking, and lasting change.

This network is active in more than 350 cities, and it gathers more than 7,000 young people. In one of those cities, Bilbao, is our Hub (Global Shapers Bilbao), where I participate as a Shaper since December 2018.

Snapshots of my life

Childhood: I was an introvert and shy guy

Childhood: I was an introvert and shy guy

Until this moment of my life, I could describe myself as the typical introvert, nerdy and IT-freak guy. These things worked “fine” for me (not really), but I noticed that keeping this close-minded attitude wouldn’t give me anything in my future.

Mexico: My viewpoint of life changed

However, having passed the Freshman year at the university, I realised I couldn’t keep myself as this. I really needed to know if the things I were studying had any sense for me at all or not. Because of that, I went to Mexico City during a couple of months. There, I had the chance to know different realities, which made me learn to react in foreign places, aswell as know myself better.

Silicon Valley: Another experience that changed my mindset

With this new experience, I got to know a highly competitive ecosystem, learning from very interesting aspects and experiences of the people living there.

Galde: Foundation of Business

Due to my 2 End of Degree Projects in Computer Engineering + Business Administration & Management, I wanted to start my own business with the brand Galde. And it is helping me to develop personally and professionally much more than I could develop in a more usual job. I don’t regret this decision at all.
