About the founder Adriana Castillo

Adriana was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After finishing her studies in Business Administration in Buenos Aires she came to Germany in 2002 to complete a Master's degree in International Business. Since then she has worked on numerous projects to connect Latin America and Europe.
