I am a 25-year old Colombian who loves entrepreneurship, meeting new people, and Manchester United. My life has consisted of growing up in a lot of different countries due to my father's job. This has given me the opportunity to live and explore new cultures in South America, Africa, the Middle East, The Caribbean, and North America.
Having grown up in countries where there is such a visible lack of resources, subpar products/services, inadequate technology, and in many cases not even proper sanitation and healthcare... has inspired the entrepreneur within me. I am always on the look out for new ideas, and business opportunities that can help improve the world around us, and create value.
After high school I decided to attend Northeastern University in Boston where I enjoyed 5 great years, and matured as a person and a professional. I also enjoyed some great job opportunities working in business intelligence, start up accelerators, venture capital, private equity, and educational technology. Most importantly, I made some great friends that will last a lifetime.
I am now living the startup life, and are running two startups: Destination:Dev, which is a coding bootcamp for digital nomads, and Labora Today, a job search platform for jobs in industries with high employee turnover. I am currently living in Medellin, Colombia - but will be spending my time between here and Puerto Rico where my company Labora Today has been invited to participate in Parallel 18 - a prestigious equity-free startup accelerator in the region. Only time will tell what will happen next!
