José Luis, President and Founder of Sngular, was responsible for spearheading Sngular’s transformation from a Spanish custom software developer to an international provider of a wide range of technology solutions. True to his own multidisciplinary experience and the company’s vocation to collaborate with others, José Luis likes to refer to Sngular “not as a company, but as an ecosystem of innovation.”
Despite an outstanding career as a telecommunications and biomedical engineer, José Luis may be best known for his success as an entrepreneur. He was one of two founders of a highly successful startup, BuyVIP, one of the first online fashion private sales clubs in Europe, which sold to Amazon in 2010. He has invested and helped build the technology platforms for over a dozen other internet startups, including LolaMarket, Belbex, Mercadeuda, Techon Rails, and My TripleA. He has also invested in a number of biotech startups including HealthyTech, NIMGenetics, MedimSight, and Enzymlogic.
José Luis, currently based in Madrid, was born in Badajoz, Spain. He has two bachelor’s and two master’s degrees in telecommunications and biomedical engineering, respectively. He also has an executive MBA from the IESE Business School (University of Navarra) and completed an executive program at the Silicon Valley think tank, Singularity University.
