The journey started when our cofounders met in Southern California, and discussed their global travel experience.

Víctor Vicente Sánchez

CTO

Passionate about technology and immersed in the mobile world, he bet for a revolutionary idea, which will provide, to the lovers of tourism and knowledge, the chance to discover thousands of stories before arriving to their next destination. Victor was born and raised in Villalba, a small town in the suburbs of Madrid, Spain. He studied Computer Science at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, but before even graduating he started to get involved in the world of mobile apps, working with small startups as well as big corporations. He clearly states that “ a job in a startup is not a job, as I perceive it as a pleasure possible to achieve through dedication”. He has worked on many applications for small and big companies, and as it was expected, some of them were more successful than others… Now he is actively betting for Tourwhiz, because he has no doubt that, working side by side with the team that best fits this new Startup, it will revolutionize the industry of tourism, both for tourists and for locals.
