Today, we are excited to share that Pep Gómez, the Co-Founder and Board member of Reby, and Founder of Fever, will be joining us on the main stage to talk about his inspiring entrepreneurial career and give insights into how to build and grow in crowded markets.
Pep Gómez is a visionary entrepreneur and investor with a great story to tell. Born in 1992, he created his first company at the age of 14. After spending some time living in California, at the age of 19, he founded Fever, the world’s leading company in the digitalization of the leisure experience sector and now a unicorn company. Fever began 2022 by raising €200 million. Pep was Chairman, CEO and main shareholder of Fever for more than 6 years. At the age of 25, he decided to set up his next venture – Reby.
Based in Barcelona, Reby is on a mission to bring mobility closer to everyone, without pollution, and in a sustainable way. Founded in 2018, Reby’s urban mobility service provides on-demand electric vehicles for shared use and currently has an active fleet of electric scooters, bikes, and motorbikes in over 18 cities across Europe – exceeding 3 million trips! Leading the urban mobility transformation in Southern Europe, Reby is an exciting company in this growing space.
Pep has also been an advisor to companies such as the retail firm ASICS or PRISA, the largest media group of informative, cultural, and educational content in Spain and Latin America. He has also collaborated with various non-profit initiatives aimed at promoting entrepreneurship and venture capital in Europe, such as the Mobile World Capital Foundation or The Collider, a venture builder that promotes technology transfer projects from Spanish universities.
