Will Crisis Spark Innovation?

Episode #2 – Danhalit Zamalloa has started businesses in extreme conditions and we talk about how we can spark innovation during tough times.

Danhalit Zamalloa has started a company:

  • on a dictatorship (checked)
  • while the country is on a protest (checked)
  • on a global pandemic (checked)

We go deep and this is a great listen to prepare your business during uncertain times or if you are thinking of starting a business in the middle of a crisis.

Will Crisis Spark Innovation?

My guest today Danhalit Zamalloa is a tech entrepreneur, and co-founder and CEO of Wibo, a mobile engagement platform. Danhalit is a Global Shaper, an initiative of the World Economic Forum, and was the former President of AIESEC in Venezuela.

I met Danha 5 years ago when she was working in her first company PagoFlash which was a great example of how to start and grow a company during uncertain times.

Danhalit tells her story of how she grew up in the era of Hugo Chavez and was part of the political protest movement. And how she started one company during the dictatorship in Venezuela and her second company during the protest movement in Chile. A great listen to prepare your business during uncertain times.
