About The Event
Join our host Alejandro and the Techstars alumni tech founder community at this Off-the-Record conversation with our special guest Edrizio de La Cruz, founder of Arcus (Acquired by MasterCard 21’).
Our conversations take place over a Zoom call, not a webinar, so there is space to share experiences and ask for advice. The event will be carried out as a fireside chat for 30 minutes plus a 20 minute Q&A.
Edrizio is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, investor and occasional stand up comic :-)
He’s a Dominican immigrant who grew up in Harlem. He dropped out of college to work as an aircraft technician to help make ends meet. He ultimately went back to college, worked on Wall Street and earned an MBA from The Wharton School. In 2013, he co-founded Arcus, a fintech company. He worked with an incredible team to build the company from scratch to 100+ employees, 100+ clients and raised $19M in funding from Y-Combinator, Ignia, Softbank and Citi Ventures. In 2021, the company was sold to Mastercard.
