Salvador AbascalCo-Founder at Miio
Sal Abascal. Over the course of the last 30 years, I’ve co-founded more than 20 companies, many of them delivering new technologies to the underserved markets. Combine an MVNO with a Fintech Digital Bank and you have Miio, the first Telco-Bank in Latin America. As Miio co-founder, it's a challenging responsibility to generate value for many people who don't feel welcome in the traditional Financial Institutions.
My approach to the Base of the Pyramid Market is largely inspired by more than 15 years of delivering micro-loans to hundreds of thousands of entrepreneurs all over Mexico. I also have had the opportunity to learn from failure and bankruptcy. That's why many entrepreneurs reach me for advise for starting, saving, or improving their companies. Outside of entrepreneurship I enjoy interior design and cooking barbecues.
