Brief

🇳🇮  🇺🇸  Born in Dominican Republic, Grew up in Nicaragua and USA.

Graduated with  a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Purdue University, MBA from Babson College, Fintech specialization from Wharton & Sustainable Management from Yale.

At the age of 21, I was the COO of a US Startup raising over $40M with operations in LATAM & South Africa.

The last 7 years, I served as Investment Director for a LATAM PE firm focused on renewable energy managing 115M in AUM.

Today, I am part of the investment team focused on Fintech & Web3 at VU Venture Partners, Founding investor of Sweater Fund, Startup advisor for Consilience Ventures, member of the Captable Coalition, Founding member of Web3 Venture House web 3 by Launch house, Venture Associate at Republic and member of the Government Blockchain association.

Aside from VC: One  of the most exciting projects I am working on came through a partnership with a German startup I reached out to which focuses on supply chain traceability. We are building a blockchain platform for responsible mineral tracking, to trace the responsible provenance of gold from artisanal and small scale mining (ASGM) operations. By creating blockchain-secured digital IDs called digital Product Passports to track their material shipments downstream. These passports contain information such as provenance data, due diligence documents and carbon emissions data, and are a way of differentiating and adding value to commodities.

My Philosophy

Since I can remember, success has been primarily measured by the material value of goods and services. But entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation could and should serve society. We have to return to a values-based society where people are motivated not only by money, but also by a sense of service to the community.

Entrepreneurship is the best way to advance innovative ideas but we need those ideas not only to create material value but also to foster social progress. I have  a strong desire to continue learning, maximizing skills and networks to create a positive impact through sustainable approaches to global challenges.
