For the 7th edition of Imagine Silicon Valley, one of Imagine’s regular partners Everis held the yearly international competition to choose their Dreamer. This time the competition covered the Latin American countries: Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil. Inside the company, the Imagine participance is seen as a business opportunity to develop a really disruptive and outstanding project, as well as, for the Dreamer, to discover the world of innovation, connect to an amazing network and become better in the fields he chooses during the program. And the winner in 2017 is Ernesto Gámiz (Mexico).
Trained as chemical engineer, Ernesto entered Everis as an intern and today is a business analyst in telecom & utilities area developing strategies for top management. He is a person who likes to challenge himself, to search for new opportunities to test his capabilities, always open to new experiences and new people. The challenge Ernesto sees in Imagine is “to learn a life lesson form this dynamic, creative program, working with a team and developing ideas from scratch». He was brought up between two continents, between Mexico and Spain, which made him a traveller, photographer and triathlete. He already is a finisher of San Francisco triathlon, and this year in Silicon Valley he sets himself the goal of running the SF Marathon. In Ernesto’s opinion, the key to success in any endeavour is passion, excellency, open mind and a good sense of humor, which reflect the values of both Everis and Imagine.
