Ramon Recuero

I am currently a cofounder at Kinto.

Previously founded Babylon.finance, a DeFi protocol that reached more than $50M in AUM. Long ago, I worked at Y Combinator, building products and helping founders. Before that, I built apps and games for Moz, Google and Zynga. In a previous life, founded Netgamix, a user generated trivia platform that reached more than 100K MAU.

After turning 30, I wrote a book to summarize all the insights learned on the way called Grip. I also coach & mentor startup founders. If you are interested, please email me at  [email protected].

Core Values

  • It's all about people.
  • Remember yourself. There's only here and now. Attention is all we have. Use it wisely.
  • We overestimate risk. When in doubt, choose the path that leads to the best story. No regrets.
  • Life is a game of opposites. Black and White, sound and silence. Let go of the ilusion that you can control life. Treat life as a dance, as play.
  • The fewer things you identify with, the happier you will be. Question your conditioning. Free yourself.
  • Don't take anything personally. When someone wrongs you, they just can't help it...
