Since I was a little kid, there have been three constants in my life: learning, sports, and people. Firstly, I’ve always been extremely curious, intrigued about how things work and how they interact between each other. This has taught me the value of creative and critical thinking when understanding the roots of a problem and how to find a solution for it. Secondly, I’ve always practiced or played at least one sport a week for my whole life. My competitive nature and my passion for physical health have always driven me into trying new sports and challenging myself at the highest level. From basketball, tennis, golf, and track at an amateur level, to boxing and rugby at a semi-professional level, sports have never ceased to exist in my life. Throughout this process, sports have taught me two things: the importance of discipline and the value of teamwork, which links me to my third constant, people. Either with friends, family, or teammates, I’ve always been surrounded by people. This has made me realize that in life, without the ability to relate to others, build relationships, and create teams, our potential is limited. Thanks to our uniqueness as human beings, we have the capacity to build interdisciplinary team with multiple abilities that add up to create more value together than the sum of the value of each individual on its own.
All this, added to me being a passionate Business Engineering student, have made me a true believer that with some well-directed creativity, a good amount of critical thinking, a bunch of teamwork, and the will to challenge the status quo, any problem can be solved, and any goal can be attained. This is why I believe in Start-Ups and their power to transform our world, and why I see Wollef and the venture capital industry as the catalyst of that transformation, especially in today's rapidly changing Latin American landscape.
I couldn’t be happier to be part of this great team at Wollef and contribute to our mission: building long lasting relationships with entrepreneurs, stay open-minded to new ideas and approach every day with passion and boldness, taking the risk to act innovatively; all with the goal of making better the world of tomorrow.
