He has been the only Spaniard named to Forbes' esteemed "30 Under 30" list for Europe in the Finance category, a testament to his exceptional leadership and innovation. 

Joaquim’s beginnings

Joaquim graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Universidad Politécnica de Catalunya (FIB), and has honed his skills in software development and project management over the years. Prior to co-founding Flanks, he led various information extraction areas in startups, laying a solid foundation for his current position.

Then, in 2019, Joaquim co-founded Flanks along with Álvaro Morales and Sergi Lao, the current Chairman and CTO of the company. With their dedication and visionary approach, the three propelled the company to new heights of success, to the point of becoming a pioneering force in wealth data aggregation at a national and global level. Through strategic insights and a commitment to excellence, Joaquim has been instrumental in shaping Flanks into the organization it is today.
