Key Quotes:

  • “What we tell our clients is, you don’t need to reinvent the wheel, but, you need to be different from the others. Because if not, there’s just thousands of people pitching the same thing, and then you just don’t stand out, right?” – Lucas Caneda
  • “There are lots of relationships that you need to be doing and that’s one of the things that we also have a nice network of investors for instance, whenever it’s important to do so, we can bring to the table whenever we think there’s a good fit.” – Lucas Caneda
  • “To finish, you need to be able to take a punch and stand back up. Because that’s part of the game. You need to be able to push further, there’s always a little bit extra that you can give that can make a difference. Well, it’s up to you to do it or not.” – Lucas Caneda
