Founded and led several start-up ventures. Develop business concepts and models, obtained funding, orchestrated marketing, and oversaw day-to-day operations.
Sharing my failures and success stories is part of myself. Sharing is caring and every entrepreneur, need to hear more about failure than success.
I had the pleasure to mentor and advice more than 500 startups in 3 years. I see myself in their eyes, and it makes my day when I can give them my personal point of view to their challenges and problems. I'm here to help them.
Inspire and motivate people is what drives me. I always try to craft the most valuable content to the audiences that I talk to.
I attend more than 60 events a year. From corporate events like Web Summit, SaaS Meetups, Founders Gathering to Lunch & Learn with Accelerators

I had the pleasure of working with Felipe for 2 1/2 years starting at SendGrid and through the acquisition of SendGrid by Twilio. Felipe consistently demonstrated an amazingly positive attitude, an aptitude for finding opportunity in every interaction, the capacity to work with people from a broad range of cultures, backgrounds and all the while doing it with a smile. Felipe is a seasoned evangelist with a solid rolodex, he'd be an asset to any company he joins!
Felipe has been instrumental in the success of SendGrid in Europe. His drive and passion for building a community has helped elevate the brand and drive revenue. Every time we needed his help at an event in Europe we knew we could count on him to execute the event and make SendGrid stand out.
Working with Felipe has always been an extreme pleasure. Whether we are talking about his positive attitude or his problem-solving abilities, his drive to achieve results no matter the circumstances is admirable. He is very quick to respond and with his eyes on the ball at all times. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him both as a partner of TNW as well as during various community-building activities at numerous conferences.
Felipe is an ongoing mentor at SWG accelerator. He helps early-stage startups with building a business mindset and sharing email-marketing knowledge. Clear and specific with step-by-step guidance, followed by his experience.
Felipe has been a great connection for us at SendGrid, helping us to get started with their services and introducing us to their startup program. It has been easy to communicate all the time, and he has been good at explaining how things work.
