30 Oct ECP 011 – Eduard Jubany, young world traveler, startup founder of a multicultural apparel brand
I met Eduard a couple of years ago at my first Digital Nomad event in Barcelona. I had just learned this term “digital nomad” a few months before through a website called www.nomadlist.com. I saw they organized events in various cities around the world, and I saw there would be one in Barcelona, so I got excited to go meet some like minded world traveling digital entrepreneurs like me, for the first time.
When I got there, I sat next to this young man, who gave me a class on how to register a business in Hong Kong. He had done it years before and had already lived in several countries. I couldn’t stop talking and learning from him. And I am still learning.
Since then we’ve become friends and are always exchanging ideas on different struggles we go through. I’m sure you, too, will enjoy meeting Eduard and keeping up with what he is constantly learning and sharing.
Some time after that, he invited me to join his Coworking, where we had the most amazing view of Barcelona to work from. That’s where we recorded this talk for you.
A few months after we recorded, he published a great article called “What I Learned Starting Lumumba And Fucking It Up“. It’s a must read after you listen to this conversation we had. Hope you enjoy!

1:53 How Eduard started his journey in China at 19 years old, and moved through 25 countries in Asia, Africa an America.
