David started Agesem in 1990. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Agesem?
That’s a good question. It all really started at the university. One friend and I saw one announcement from a consolatory that was looking for some young employees. They hired us at the age of 21, and we worked there for four years. Here was when I realized that the most important thing in a tax and legal consolatory is personal attention and to empathize with the client. With the years, we gained a lot of experience and know-how and decided we wanted to have our own client’s portfolio and our own enterprise.
The future is the collaboration with autonomous entities that collaborate in the common good.
Frankly, when you are 25 years old, your idea is more like a dream. We were two young boys with just plenty of energy and enthusiasm by our side and few savings. They took with them some of their previous clients and some new ones from the word of mouth. It was all about the contacts that we had made in the university, previous job, and our family.
Besides, in Spain, in the 90s, the process of creating a company was still more a bet than a technical reality. There were no business plans, there were no economic studies... We started with great enthusiasm, technical knowledge and a desire to improve and professionalize our work, the image of the consultant was not a known figure nor regulated. At that time, it was about making an attractive product, of satisfying a need for service and, finally, and that is the most important thing, of being useful. The notice did not need a great regulation at that time, there was no law on money laundering, nor data protection, in fact, personal computers had just been born. At that time there was just a business opportunity to explore, and that’s what we did.
