Constanza joined Octopus in 2021 and is part of the B2B Software pod, with a focus on companies that are initiating their scaleup phase in their growth.
“I love meeting new founders, learning from their visions and how they plan to disrupt different sectors. B2B SaaS is a very exciting space, with numerous diverse end sectors and impressive businesses. It is a privilege to be part of the founders’ journies, supporting them at the inflection point where they begin to scale their companies”.
Constanza is an industrial engineer by background and worked as a management consultant both in Chile and in the Netherlands, across a wide range of sectors, such as retail, manufacturing, and financial services. She was part of the team that implemented Open Banking at ING Bank and then moved to London to pursue an MBA at London Business School, completing stints in investment banking at Lazard and Arma Partners, and in private equity at Lloyds Development Capital. Prior to joining Octopus, she was a Strategy Manager at Vertiv, a global leader in providing solutions for data centres. She was also selected as one of the fellows at IncludedVC – a fellowship that aims to (literally) change the face of venture capital by increasing diversity in the sector.
Beyond Octopus, she enjoys travelling, food, photography, painting, and improving her golf swing – albeit ineffectually.
