Known information

Felipe Mendez, originally from Denmark, holds a degree in International Business Administration from Hult International Business School in London. He founded his first company during high school in Denmark and later worked on a medical device project that won several competitions. Mendez’s adventurous spirit led him to survive alone in the wilds of Siberia, during which he endured significant physical challenges. His career in Colombia began with a role at Rappi, followed by a position in corporate innovation at Grupo Bolívar. He then led product efforts at an international fintech startup and spent about a year working closely with builders in Colombia. Mendez joined HippoBuild as the first employee and General Manager after meeting a colleague who shared his vision.
