Nico Valencia studied Electrical & Computer Engineering / Psychology at CU Boulder, later shifting his focus to Software Engineering and Agile Web Development. With experience in architecting scalable web and mobile applications as well as agile product ownership, Nico is now engaged in a devoted pursuit of product prototype development.
The boundary of what can be accomplished with the newest technologies becomes a dream at night and an obsession by day.
As Quick Left's first Development Lead, and after four years, Nico is now switching gears to focus on first-step consulting. He helps new entrepreneurs build minimal prototypes as they begin their product adventure. He believes that product ideas should be quickly prototyped and market-tested before plunging into deep cycles of development, and is busy doing so with many great concepts. The idea of a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is a core focus for Nico. His grand vision embraces sculpting core products for his clients.
