A few words about Lionel:
Lionel came to Miami in 2001 as a CTO of Neoris, the second largest consulting firm in Latin America. Before Neoris he sold Alterbrain (e-builder) to CEMEX and ran a couple of startups in the Silicon Valley where he started as CTO of Gupta Technologies that created the client server category back in early 70’s. Marcela Henao started Terremark back in 2000 after a successful career with Telcordia. Thereafter Marcela and Lionel started Leapfactor in 2010 with the idea to create a cloud based platform for business mobile Apps. Five years after Leapfactor continues to offer leading business Apps to help brands transform the way to touch their customers and how to enable their sales teams. In more concrete terms; when you book a ticket with Aeromexico using a smartphone, when a jewelry representative swipes a credit card on a iPad or when someone sends a remittance from the US to anywhere in the world, it is Leapfactor that provides the Mobile Cloud Services platform. Leapfactor has over 50 talented people on the team across the Americas and Marcela and Lionel are proud Endeavor entrepreneurs stubborn enough to stay in Miami.
