REPORT

''The digital revolution has been with us for 50 or 60 years now; there have been several waves, and they are coming faster and faster. Having the necessary understanding to create added value is thus what yields success'', said Bernardo Hernández, entrepreneur, investor and tech industry executive, speaking at ESADE Alumni Start-up Day. The annual event brought together entrepreneurs and business angels to discuss entrepreneurship and corporate venturing.

''The value does not lie in creating the technology, but in knowing how to use it'', said Hernández, former CEO of Flickr and former Global Product Manager at Google, amongst other things, and currently General Partner at e.ventures. ''Apple, Facebook and Google do not create technologies. They apply existing technologies in different ways and generate a lot of value'', he added.

In this regard, he noted, ''The digital revolution is a reintermediation, not a disintermediation.'' He cited the examples of travel agencies and banking, amongst others. ''No industry is protected. They will all be reintermediated, because people are becoming more and more digital. Competitive technical advantages are thus very important'', Hernández explained.
