Pioneering fintech in Uruguay, with Mateo Infantozzi (Prezzta and Octa.dev)
In one way, it's slightly surprising that Mateo Infantozzi Riembau was a fintech founder. Not because there were no signs of entrepreneurial thinking, but because his early successes came from the travel industry. And yet he's done it twice, at a time were "there was little room for startups in Uruguay, and even less room for fintechs". But local innovators have changed that quickly. Now "fintech is sexy", and Mateo and his co-founders played a significant role in that change.
