Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I consider an entrepeneurial accomplishment the fourth place and honor mention in Odebrecht award for sustainable development, with a project titled “Sustainable development of an adsorbent and biodegradable material, from banana peels, for the discoloration of wastewater from the textile industries of Pelileo city, Tungurahua province, and its posterior use in the production of biol and organic fertilizer”. It is not the award what I consider the accomplishment, but rather the fact that our team was able to develop a really simple solution for the contamination problem in Pelileo. Banana peels could be sun dried and used to discolor textile wastewater. Innovation sometimes hides behind the simplest ideas, and being able to identify it lightens me.
