For this session, join us to chat with Cristina Fonseca, female serial tech entrepreneur, Angel investor and Engineer.
Featured in the Forbes 30 under 30 on 2016 under the enterprise technology category, and recently named by The World Economic Forum as one of the Young Global Leaders driving innovation for positive change, Cristina will share with us her vision about the first steps towards developing a successful company, how to stand out in an increasingly more competitive market or what it takes to raise money for a startup these days.
In 2011, she co-founded Talkdesk, one of the few Portuguese “unicorns”. Talkdesk is the leading global Cloud-Based Call Center Solution, having raised $267 million from top Silicon Valley investors and employing over 1000 people today.
As a Partner at Indico Capital Partners, the first private institutional early-stage venture capital fund in Portugal, with 66 million euros under management and backed by institutional and individual investors from 16 countries, Cristina works closely with the portfolio of 21 global tech disruptors. Indico invested over 28 million euros since early 2019 in its companies, who in turn, raised a collective amount of more than 600 million euros and created more than 1000 jobs.
Cristina is also a non-executive Board Member and Member of the Sustainability Committee of Galp since 2019 and a co-founder at Cleverly.ai, a startup that automates customer service with Artificial Intelligence, eliminating manual and repetitive work and making customer service teams 30% more productive on average.
