MercadoLibre CEO Marcos Galperin, a board member of Endeavor Argentina and one of Endeavor’s first entrepreneurs, joined the Board of Directors of Onapsis. Founded by Endeavor Entrepreneurs Mariano Nuñez and Victor Montero, Onapsis is a leading business security solutions provider to top technology firms like SAP and Oracle. This news demonstrates the power of Endeavor’s model and the importance of entrepreneurs who give back to their local ecosystems.
Onapsis gives organizations the adaptive advantage to succeed in securing business-critical applications by combining technology, research and analytics. Onapsis enables every security and compliance team an adaptive approach to focus on the factors that matter most to their business– critical applications that house vital data and run business processes including SAP Business Suite, SAP HANA and SAP Mobile deployments.
“I understand, first-hand, the importance of securing complex and critical business systems,” said Mr. Galperin. “The data and information that is held within applications such as enterprise resource planning, supply chain and business intelligence is critical to the running of a large business. With the rise of security breaches, enterprises are quickly realizing the importance of securing these critical applications. Onapsis has a strong vision, talented and committed entrepreneurs and founders, and a relevant set of solutions that combine technology and expert knowledge. It was a sound investment, and I am excited to join the Board of Directors to further support the rapid growth of the business.”
Selected in 1999 and most recognized for co-founding MercadoLibre, the largest e-commerce ecosystem in Latin America, Galperin is considered to be a top internet entrepreneur. MercadoLibre has over 3,000 employees, operates in 13 countries and delivers a robust online trading environment with over 80 million transactions conducted in the last 12 months. The company and its three founders have become Endeavor success stories and champions of the organization and its entrepreneurs worldwide. Prior to being appointed, Galperin had also invested in Onapsis.
“Mr. Galperin’s vast experience in building and maintaining a robust business- with technology that has scaled to 13 countries and to over 110 million registered users – is an incredible asset to Onapsis,” said Mariano Nuñez, CEO of Onapsis. “We look forward to benefiting from his insight and counsel. He has been a supporter of Onapsis, our mission and the need to secure business applications since the beginning. Having him join our Board is a great endorsement to our team and the execution of our mission.”
Since joining the Endeavor network in 2011, Mariano and Victor have received tailored mentorship and strategic advising through Endeavor’s global network. In addition, the team has made a number of investor connections with the help of the Endeavor Investor Network while regularly participating in global tours and conferences.
