On February 26, students from the ‘Entrepreneurship Initiative’ course at San Vicente Ferrer College visited EDICOM. During the visit, they became acquainted with the company’s entrepreneurial experience, discussing issues such as success, failure and motivation.
Colleagues from different EDICOM departments, who have been working in the company since its inception, explained the pitfalls and challenges of joining a company that was just starting up in the late 90s. Ana Darder, Human Resources Director of the Technical Department, highlighted the importance of working in other companies before launching a business. Also, that “luck needs work; it calls for effort, perseverance, patience and enthusiasm”.
Next up was Germán Sánchez, Latin America Technical Department Manager, who talked about how evolution and growth had not affected the essence of EDICOM. “We are still a company hungry for new projects, eager to grow and explore new paths, and our clients continue to see us as partners”.
Vicente Silvestre, Retail Channel Executive Manager, revealed four key factors for an entrepreneurial company: having goals, feeling what you do, becoming aware of the differential value of the company and having a vision for the future.
Finally, Santi Bellosta, Head of Research and Development Department, explained how the challenges that EDICOM posed were what encouraged him to join the company, and what has made him stay with us for more than 20 years. “Challenges motivate you; they make you happy; the working hours pass quickly and it keeps you focused”.
After clearing up the queries from the students about how the business has grown and the keys to its success, they toured the EDICOM facilities to get to know the day-to-day workings of the different departments.
