Dear tech entrepreneur,

Big news doesn’t come alone so take a deep breath. Here we go!

This week, in our podcast 100, we interview Yassir Raïs, founder of Syra Coffee, who is rapidly growing a successful business in the specialty coffee sector. We at Itnig deeply believe in his project and we have decided to invest in accelerating its growth!

On top of that, Syra and Itnig are working on what we call Coffice, an office space that offers coffee for everyone. We will open doors on August 5th (Pujades 100, Barcelona) so make sure to pass by to try our coffee!

Oh, and a couple more news to start off the week. Sifted explained how to do PR in a startup – tip, don’t hire an agency before Series A. And if you have a B2B model, you may be interested in learning how to build your Lead Generation Strategy.

Podcast #100: From 1 to 100 cafeterias with Yassir Raïs from Syra Coffee

We got to the podcast 100 already, and to celebrate it we have invited Yassir Raïs, founder and CEO at Syra Coffee. At Itnig we believe in the potential of his project and we are investing from the Itnig Fund to support its growth.

His claim is to democratise coffee, good coffee. He believes that specialty coffee should not be expensive but it should remain of outstanding quality. His success in his fist shop in Gracia (Barcelona) has encouraged him to dream big and scale the business to become the leader in the sector.

We compared the business to Luckin Coffee (over 1.700 shops) and Starbucks. Check it out here!

The Apollo 11 turns 50, a project that might bring some insights for your own moonshots. Additionally, as entrepreneurs ourselves, we know sales is tough and being a team leader in the sales department is even tougher so Bernat wrote an opinion piece on what a leader should have.

Oh, and Camaloon also joined the last viral challenge, the #bottlecapchallenge. Check out their cool video!
