Eduardo Suarez

Eduardo Suárez (León, 1979) started his career as a journalist in the Spanish newspaper 'El Mundo'. He worked there from 2000 to 2014. First as Opinion writer and then as a foreign correspondent in London, New York and Brussels. After leaving 'El Mundo', he was one of the founders of the Spanish digital newspaper 'El Español'. He helped to design the product and the social media strategy and he also helped to develop a crowdfunding campaign that raised more than €3m in two months. In 2016 Eduardo left 'El Español' and started this new project with a group of journalist, developers and political scientists. Politibot was born in June 2016 as an experiment to cover the Spanish election. With the help of Google's DNI Fund, it has become a startup and is developing a Bot Managament System (BMS) to help any company or news organization to develop its own bot in an easy way. Eduardo has just covered the US Presidential Election for Univision and has published three books on US Politics, the last one about the Republican Senator Marco Rubio. In 2014 he was awarded with the International Journalism Prize Gabriel García Márquez for a story on the lasting impact of the environmental disaster of the Exxon Valdez.
