I am a Venture Capitalist with a passion for innovation, positive impact and Latin America. I collaborate with intrepid founders, visionary investors and strategic allies to identify great innovative ideas and transform them in successful companies that improve the lives of millions.
I am a co Founder and Partner at Salkantay, an impact investments asset manager focused in the Pacific Alliance and with presence in Lima, San Francisco and New York. As an investor, I have gained end to end experience building, managing and divesting alternative portfolios at Salkantay and Enfoca, working from setup to fundraising, from prospection to investment, and from value creation to successful exit.
I have held direct managerial positions (CEO, CMO, CFO,...) during turn around and change management situations and worked across Latin America as a Management Consultant for Bain & Co.
