Impact metric175% growth in revenues since selection
“I saw an opportunity to facilitate payments for millions of small and mid-sized merchants via the Internet.”
- Financial Services
Leonardo and Alejandro have found profitable ways to facilitate debit/credit card payments to millions of small and mid-sized merchants. They launched a company, Ventakit, whose primary product Tienda-kit offers credit/debit POS terminals and transaction processing via Internet Protocol (IP) technology at a substantially lower cost than existing telephone validation systems. Since selection by Endeavor, the number of jobs has grown by 147%.
In 2008, Alejandro and Leonardo sold a majority stake in Ventakit to Verifone (secure electronic payment technology company); the result is a joint venture between Ventakit and Verifone called Verifone Access.
