Community Spotlight
Cristian Villamarin—Co-founder @ Flipd
48Hrs June 2018 Alum

Cristian’s digital wellness startup, Flipd, aims to promote healthy screen habits among those of us who are overly-attached to our mobile devices. His discipline toward productivity and leading a well-balanced lifestyle is the reason why in his off-time as a founder, he competes in the Ironman—of the the most difficult triathlons.

Cristian writes a thoughtful piece comparing the founder journey with the gruelling experience training for and completing in the Ironman race. It’s a refreshing and honest reflection that contrasts with headlines that laud overnight successes and the glamour of the startup world. Read it here.
