Antonio as a young entrepreneur can not have a long bio, but this does not make it less intense nor interesting. Antonio is an entrepreneur disrupting the financial industry through a company founded in 2011 named Kantox and based on a very simple business model and the principles of simplicity and transparency.
Antonio was born in Palma de Mallorca (Spain) in 1986. Moved to Barcelona to graduate in Business Administration at ESADE and mastered in finance at SMU (Singapore Management University) where he also developed one of his greatest passions, travelling.
While studying at ESADE he had his first experiences with entrepreneurship at Inveready a Venture Capital Start-up. Inveready was at the same time a Venture Capital firm, but at the same time a Start-up when Antonio joined and this experience would allow him to take one step forward when the occasion presented jointly with his co-founder Philippe Gelis. At Inveready he advised and analyzed dozens of companies in the boitech industry and performed the investment process in several of them. Prior to that step Antonio joined as an Strategic Consultant for Deloitte, where he met, worked and came up with Kantox with Mr. Gelis.
Kantox is a web platform where companies can trade currencies corporate to corporate, fully de-intermediating the bank and providing a tool that is available, simple and generates massive savings to any company dealing with foreign currencies. This model was started in Barcelona and is today present in the whole Spain, UK, The Netherlands and provides its services to a large number of companies in Europe and the US. Their model has won prestigious awards at a national and international level by the Entrepreneur and Financial Industries. The savings, service quality and transparency have turned their own clients into their personal sales machine.
