About Carlos

So keen about startups that every day is the first thought in my head and the last one an night (and probably every minute in between)

About a year ago I founded a startup called PayUp which focused around mobile payments. It was a short lived experience as the other founders moved abroad. In the meantime however we managed to get some traction and even made it to the last 20 teams out of 850 that applied to the Barclays/TechStars accelerator. We didn't make it to the last 10, but the experience (4 interviews) was awesome nevertheless.

I graduated from Oxford University, with an MSc in Software engineering. My BSc was in Computer Science.

First Job was at Symantec, leading the development efforts for a new stealth product on the field of cyber security and information discovery leveraging big data technologies and machine learning.

I currently work in the City in the Trading Front Office arm of Lloyds Commercial Bank. Mainly working in greenfield projects leveraging Big Data technologies for large scale data analytics.

Startup fields that currently catch my fancy are FinTech and AdTech. But always open to discussing anything and everything.

I'm open to grabbing a drink, sharing ideas, getting to know people and if we click, going for it!
