1., integrated restaurant management, gets €5M in a delicious year for Spanish FoodTech 🧑🏻‍🍳🖥️. is an integrated management platform for restaurant businesses: its clients include restaurant chains, independent establishments and dark kitchens🥷🏼. The restaurant business has become more complex than in the past: different sales and delivery channels (in-room 🍽️, delivery🛵, pick-up🥡, take-away🥤...) and everything must come out of the same kitchen. This is precisely one of their secrets: bringing together the different sales and service processes in the same software to give clarity to the management😅.

In addition, from the beginning they were aware that the key, in a business that has a lot of sacrifice and inmediatez⏱️, is to keep the learning curve to a minimum and to automate repetitive but necessary tasks ✅. Adapted to any operating system and capable of integrating other platforms, they seek that the change is given with the minimum fricción🧘🏻‍♂️.

Founded in 2019 in Barcelona, has managed to survive the pandemic and now set its sights on an expansion plan europeo🇪🇺 and consolidation in the market español🇪🇸. To do this they have closed an investment of €5M that will boost the recruitment of customer service teams 📞 and especially, marketing for expansion and sales 📢.

This investment in a RestaurantTech🧂 comes on top of a strong year for FoodTech in Spain, which ranked 5th in 2022 in Europe in terms of investment 🏅 and had a turnover x3 (€695M) compared to the investments received 🎰.

In 2023, changes in habits will be consolidated, such as teleworking or homestaging 🛋️, which will affect how we eat outside the home. We are still a country of eating out 🧑🏻‍🍳, however, we are already at 32% of restaurant spending allocated to Delivery (7%) + Takeaway (25%).

2. All about OpenAI Gate and the script twist that started just a week ago 🤖💥.

Inaugurating a new genre we could call Business Show or Corporate Drama, reality always beats fiction🎥. Neither Sillicon Valley 🤖 nor Black Mirror 🤳🏼 (not even Succession!👴🏼) have been able to fictionalise such savage struggles in the business world as the one that has been paraded before us this week🤖.

The trigger: the withering dismissal 🫵🏼 of Sam Altman as CEO of OpenAI with serious accusations about his honesty.

The pescatore: Microsoft, shareholder and savvy head-hunter 🤔 who took Altman and Brockman on board for two días👨🏻‍🍼. They didn't have time for much, but they did CV📄.

The dilemma: the internal struggle between the non-profit 🧟 vs. for-profit 🤑 faction of the council.

The Pax Romana: Sam Altman and his legion of loyal colleagues 🤑 return to OpenAI with more power than nunca🤴🏻.

The Lost Letter: The latest is a report on an alleged letter 📥 discussing Project Q, a way to improve AI reasoning that would pose a potential threat to humanity ⚠️ and was ignored 🤷🏻‍♀️.

To make sure you don't get lost or bored, I recommend:

👉🏻 And of course Elon has launched Grok, in his words, a "rebellious and witty" AI that shouldn't be used "if you don't like humour"🙄. It's all so Elon that he's probably the one who personally responds to the requests🙄.

📈 Increase in Cosmetic Surgeries and Change of Body Perception 📈 Increase in Cosmetic Surgeries and Change of Body Perception 🪞. In Spain, cosmetic surgeries increased by 215% in eight years, a parallel phenomenon in the US and other advanced countries. The most common operations include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and liposuction. This increase reflects a change in the perception of self-image, influenced by social media filters 📸 and the ubiquity of video conferencing 🙋🏼‍♀️. However, there is concern about the lack of mental health assessment in patients seeking cosmetic surgery, with experts suggesting psychological support 🗣️ for those with unrealistic expectations.

👉🏻 Here is the article on the exponential increase of surgeries in the first world.

🧒🏻 The Impact of Social Media and Aesthetic Medicine on Young People. The average age of aesthetic medicine patients has drastically decreased from 35 to 20 years old. Influenced by Instagram and other social networks, many young women are seeking treatments such as lip 👄 and cheek fillers, driven by the image of "perfection👌" presented by influencers. Psychologists warn about the risks of making impulsive decisions regarding cosmetic surgery, especially in adolescents, where there may be unresolved underlying psychological issues🤔.

👉🏻 Here is the decrease in the average age (20 years!!!) of surgery patients.

💉 Growth of Aesthetic Medicine in Spain. 40% of the Spanish population between 16 and 70 years old use aesthetic medicine 🤕, a significant increase compared to previous years. Facial treatments lead the demand, with botulinum toxin being the most popular.

👉🏻 Read here the article about this boom and how these services, previously a bit taboo 🤫, have become normalised.
