Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I am a specialist in Agricultural Economics. During the last 5 years, I focused on agribusiness project assessments (swine meat, dairy products, bioenergy, beef meat, chicken products, and pulses) and agricultural finances (forecast, budget and hedge). I have been advisor in agricultural public policies in the Ministry of Agricultural and the Ministry of Industry of Córdoba. I have lectured about economic and agricultural topics addressing audiences of entrepreneurs, bank and academic staff both in private and public meetings. I am also advisor in management in private farms.
As a former Sub-Director of the Economic Research Institute of the Córdoba Stock Exchange (15 people in charge) I have learnt how to act under the pressure of deadlines and how to create a pass along a peaceful and calm atmosphere for the team to produce successful outcomes. Also I am goal-oriented, so that I consider myself a good planner and efficient time organizer.
