Hispanic Heritage Month – Federico Baradello
“Federico Baradello, founder and CEO of Finalis, came to Ulu through a cold email. It’s one of the few cold outreaches that turned into a deal. We were impressed how well-researched his email pitch was and the reasons he outlined why we should meet with him. He’s done an excellent job of listening to his customers and pivoting his product to what his customers need and are willing to pay for. He connects with people in a way that makes them want to support him and his company. He believes that the digital transformation of ibanking will unlock massive revenue opportunities in private market dealmaking and wants to assure that Finalis has a key role in bringing about that digital transformation.” – Ulu Ventures
