Mapping of the 20 must-know Fintech Influencers in Argentina

Techfoliance is introducing you its list of the 20 must-know Fintech influencers in Argentina. Among them are popular entrepreneurs, Fintech experts and innovation leaders. 

Top Fintech influencers in Argentina

We based our analysis on a series of metrics reflecting the engagement of each professional on the list in the Argentinian Fintech ecosystem, such as:

  • Professional achievements (founding / being a member of a Fintech company, having a relevant current role in the sector, attracting considerable amount of investments to one’s companies)
  • Participation in the Fintech community (organizing, hosting, speaking at or being a panelist at key events; being part of accelerators or associations fostering the development of the industry; being a thought leader in the sector)
  • Social media activity (having a relevant number of followers, sharing interesting content across different social media platforms)

Please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list neither a ranking. It is the first update of a more established list. There are many more people currently contributing directly or indirectly to the Argentinian Fintech ecosystem.

  1. AY UN NOMBRE MAL ESCRITO… GERMÁN GIMENEZ

  2. USTEDES PUSIERON ALEMÁN GIMENEZ.-SU NOMBRE ES GERMÁN GIMENEZ.-

    • Team LATAM

      Hi Yoli,
      We checked and it is written correctly German Gimenez, are you sure?
      Best regards,
      Techfoliance Team

  3. Fintech World

    Looks like you forgot the most prominent ones… Marcos Galperin and Wences Casares.

    • Team LATAM

      Hi FinTech World,

      Thank you for your comment.

      But we have to disagree with you:

      1/ Marcos Galperin is a pioneer and leader in e-commerce, not in FinTech properly. We agree that MercadoPago.com is set to become a leading player in Argentina but we see Marcos Galperin as more of a Tech influencer rather than pure FinTech.

      2/ Wences Casares has spent most of his career in Palo Alto so it is hard to include him in a list focusing on Argentina. Nevertheless, he is undoubtely a great mind with his amazing achievement at PayPal, Kiva or Lemon Wallet.

      What’s your bet? We like to be challenged…

      • Anynimous

        So why not Osvaldo Gimenez, MercadoPago’s VP?
        And there are many startups disrupting the Financial industry such as Increase Card.
