He came back from the METS 2013 holding his head proudly up. He managed to attract the attention in the biggest professional nautical fair in the world with a product he has developed himself. To get this far on his business career has taken him various years of hard work, some brush ups with the administration and a great deal of effort to walk alone the road of entrepreneurship. “In Spain there is no public support for entrepreneurs, nor for innovation, I had to go on my own to develop the product”, says Carlos Juliá, the creator of Moormeds. Juliá is a person with a vast experience in the nautical sector. With his business acumen he picked on a necessity amongst the boat owners: how to safeguard the electrical cables of a boat in an organized manner while avoiding any damage by water? And with a reasonable price tag, as in these times nobody can afford spending money lightly.
To endeavour is not foreign to Carlos Juliá. Few years ago he left the family business to start on his own. The unemployment benefit he received when leaving his old work, he invested in the creation of Medribs, a company that manufactures inflatable boats in China, sold in Spain through Decathlon. It was a good practice that helped him to start up his new project – Moormeds, covers that can be installed in minutes and that can be adapted to any kind of boat in any port, and that protect the electrical cables in an organized manner, lengthening their useful life and preventing possible accidents. It is a known fact that electricity and water are no good together.
