Company Snapshot

Alfonso’s passion for computers led him to create Unlimited, a developer and publisher of interactive CD-ROM titles for the world market with a special focus on educational software for children. Unlimited was the first company in Latin America to have a CD-ROM title placed in the international distribution circuit. The over-arching vision of the company is “to become an ally of the education reform in Latin America” as a leading producer of children’s software in the region.

Alfonso sold his business and launched Virtualia, a marketing and customer loyalty company targeting young Internet users. Since 2006, he has been dean of the business school at Universidad Alfonso Ibañez.

Endeavor and La Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile

With the support of a Stanford eMBA, Alfonso realized the limitations of Unlimited and launched Virtualia. He benefited from advice in the start-up and business plan of Virtualia, and from a range of management workshops, networking events, and Entrepreneur Summit.

After selling Virtualia, Alfonso entered academia; Endeavor is currently assisting Alfonso as dean of the business school at Universidad Alfonso Ibañez to develop a Masters of Innovation program and degree. Alfonso has demonstrated commitment by serving as a local and international panelist.
