Caya founded Saborstudio, a creative content company, and their first startup -  an iOS game called Pota-Toss  - was a Kickstarter-funded project, released to the App Store on October 2012 to outstanding reviews (the game also came out of DreamIt). Caya was named as a one of the 40 Under 40 Costa Rican Innovators of the Year by El Finan...

Loving Boomerang. I send an email & set it to remind me if if there's no reply within x days/hrs. I use it for intro requests, bizdev, even emails to my wife that I suspect might slip through the cracks. :-)  http://bit.ly/1j0tgmi
