South Summit has announced the 100 finalist startups for its Startup Competition to be held in Madrid from October 6-8. Among the 100 finalist startups of this edition is Suscrip, from alumni Tecnun Gabriel Ayala.
Gabriel studied the Degree at Mechanical Engineering from Tecnun and graduated in 2014 and started his career at Management Solutions, a boutique consulting firm specialized in regulated industries (banking, energy and telcos). Since 2016, already at BBVA bank, "I rolled around a lot of places: Colombia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Venezuela, Venezuela, Mexico, the United States and Peru," highlights this engineer.
In 2019 he switched to area Client Solutions at BBVA, responsible for the BBVA app at the corporate level, and they made him manager: "it was super cool while I was there, but Suscrip was already taking shape and in March 2020 I left the bank for the entrepreneurial adventure," he reveals.
Suscrip is a mobile app to share any subscription, service or rental automatically. "Being one of the finalist startups at South Summit gives us the opportunity to showcase project to core topic actors of the ecosystem participating in the meeting and access to corporations and investors looking for innovation and business opportunities, as well as global leaders of the entrepreneurial ecosystem," said Ayala, CEO of this startup.
Suscrip's participation in different acceleration programs has been core topic for the evolution of the business "having the expert advice of the startup ecosystem and the financial world has helped us to understand what next steps to take at each moment" says Ayala.
A committee formed by renowned investors and experts in innovation has been in charge of selecting the 100 finalist startups of this edition, based on criteria such as the innovation Degree of project, the investment potential it can generate, as well as its scalability or internal capacity to grow and the team of professionals that compose it.
For Gabriel Ayala, being a South Summit finalist means a before and after in the life of the startup: "Being at South Summit allows us to expose ourselves to many potential users and investors through all the channels of the event itself, which in turn will propel us to the next level," concludes Ayala.
