Global Head for Blockchain and Web3 businesses, Telefónica Tech

José Luis
Last name


As I wrote a while ago, I consider myself a lucky corporate rat. I owe everything that I am to Telefónica, which has allowed me to enjoy an excellent forum to experience the digital revolution first-hand from all the cousins, including great innovation within a large company and the world of startups and entrepreneurship.

In 2017 we created the Blockchain Competence Center to reinvent Telefónica by applying decentralization paradigms. In 2011 I contributed to the launch of Wayra, Telefónica's network of technology start-up accelerators. I also participated in the launch of Navandú, a start-up of micromarketing services in the Health sector. Previously, I spent more than 15 years at Telefónica I+D and registered four patents related to messaging and social communications services and protocols.

In case you are interested, I am a Telecom Engineer from the Polytechnic University of Madrid (1996) and a Bachelor of Business Administration and Management from UNED (2007), in addition to having completed different specializations in Strategy and Innovation at MIT and Harvard Business School.
