In this episode, I'm joined with Alfonso Cobo, the founder and CEO of Unfold and also one of Forbes' newly named 30 under 30. Originally from a small town in Spain, Alfonso struggled in its traditional education system and dropped out after only two months in university. However, he didn't let this deter him from what he knew to be his passion for design and from his dream of becoming an architect, so he continued on to university again in London, where he was at the top of his class.
This commitment to his passion and eye for design ultimately led him to create Unfold, an app that allows its users to creatively cultivate and streamline their content with clean templates to then share via Instagram stories. Only a little over a year old, Unfold now has over 30 million users and is looking to expand past Instagram, to other avenues of story-telling.
Listen to Alfonso himself share his journey from overcoming his initial sense of failing after dropping out of university in Spain to ultimately creating an extremely influential platform through Unfold to drive social awareness and change by staying true to his passions for design and creative content.
