Endeavor Entrepreneur Mauricio Hoyos was recently named to MIT Technology Review’s “Innovators Under 35 – Colombia” ranking, which recognizes ten local leaders who are finding innovative solutions to regional challenges.
As founders of the Colombia-based technology company Conexred, Mauricio and his brother (and fellow Endeavor Entrepreneur) Andrés Alban sought to bring accessible financial and payment services to under-served communities around the country through their PuntoRed Network. Available at thousands of points-of-sale, the network allows users to make financial transfers, purchase mobile minutes and access a variety of other services right in their neighborhood stores and shops. Mauricio and Andrés were selected as entrepreneurs in 2012, and have been active participants in Endeavor events and programs including the Endeavor Investor Network.
