Call2W: Hi Dídac, you have been building businesses the greatest part of your life. How would you describe your evolution as an entrepreneur?
Dídac Lee: I believe I have the same excitement and spirit as 19 years ago but I have evolved my way of analyzing opportunities and taking decisions. I guess that experience and mistakes help you mature. Entrepreneurship is learnt the hard way!

Call2W: Being someone with vast knowledge of technology, what do you consider the three top benefits of the boom of startups within the software industry?

Dídac Lee: Innovative startups allow us to have an easier life and help companies reduce costs through out-of-the-box solutions.

Call2W: How did you learn about Call2World?

Dídac Lee: Manolo Garriga, the fonder and CEO of the company, is a person I have great personal affection and professional admiration for. During a lunch he told me about the company and I thought the idea made much sense.

Call2W: What do you think makes it different from other alternatives on the market?

Dídac Lee: In my opinion, Call2World solves in the most elegant and efficient way the roaming cost issue and compared to other alternatives I have tried,  the quality of the connection is much higher. This to me is very important from a professional perspective.

Call2W: Do you have a rough idea on the percentage of telecommunications related costs associated to your businesses as part of the total expenses?

Dídac Lee: It is different depending on the business but with Call2World I have reduced my international call costs by 70%!

Call2W: What is your opinion on the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy? Have you implemented it?

Dídac Lee: Yes, I do believe that corporate policies have to adapt to common sense and common sense indicates that people like to work with their personal devices.

Call2W: Finally, what are the top trends you see within the telecommunication industry?

Dídac Lee: I am not an expert in the sector but I think one of the trends would be solutions focused on optimizing distributed meetings and thus, reducing the number of meetings.
