This week we were honored to meet with the President of Argentina in the executive chambers of the “Casa Rosada” (“Pink House”). The newly inaugurated President Mauricio Macri wanted to hear the story of Bluesmart first-hand from our founders, Tomi Pierucci and Diego Saez-Gil: two Argentinean entrepreneurs who are making a unique, global impact on the travel industry and Argentina.

When Tomi and Diego arrived, they shared the origin story of our company; our dreams of creating a global brand; our desire to bring true innovations to the market; and our purpose to inspire and empower people from all over the world to explore our planet. The President graciously congratulated them on our progress and aspirations.

President Macri and our founders both see technology, entrepreneurship, and innovation as fundamental drivers of modern economies. President Macri wants to support Argentina’s special position as a hub of creativity and engineering in the connected world economy. We told him about our new office in Buenos Aires and our ambitious plans to expand our R&D team there. Argentina, the second largest county in South America, is bursting with talent and we are proud to be creating high-value new jobs for the country. Diego and Tomi invited him to visit our Headquarters, and introduce him to our friends in Silicon Valley who are working on cutting edge innovations (such as our partners at Y Combinator, Uber and Airbnb).

The President told us that he loves his new Bluesmart—he even said the look and feel can easily compete with a Versace! He gave us thoughtful product feedback and some very clever product ideas. Like a remote alarm that sounds when the suitcase is lost 🙂
