Country Manager Ecuador
I was born in Quito, Ecuador, in the late 1980s. At that time, in Quito, there was no Internet and it was very difficult to keep up with the fast changes that the world was going through after the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, I have always been restless and curious about the new cultural trends, and this allowed me to explore my creative and innovative side. Professionally, I like connecting people and building bridges that link law, technology and innovation. My personal objective is focused on inspiring other people and organizations to break new ground and see things differently in order to move towards a more collaborative and supportive society.
Privacy, Technology and Competition Leader
In order to build a digital society, we need to reinvent ourselves and create agile, innovative solutions to address the challenges that the digital economy imposes on us. After gaining significant experience in Competition and Data Privacy Law in the public and private sectors, I pursued a Master's degree in Spain where I discovered the fascinating world of Digital Law and linked it with my previous experience. Personally, I am a fan of collaborative economy apps because they make my life easier and I use them all the time. In the near future, I would like to develop an app to promote social aid projects.
Regulatory and Public Affairs Coordinator
I believe in the inclusive potential of technological development and applied innovation since, as with good public policies, they improve our quality of life and give us tools to think how we want the future to be. I was born in Argentina, spent my childhood in Uruguay and, for some years now, I have lived in Lima where I found something I was looking for –a city where I can live next to the sea-. Currently, I continue my education in governance and public policy, with special interest in digital governance, gender diversity, and the environment.
María Gracia Mendoza
Regulatory and Public Affairs Leader
In 2009, my adventure in law and public policies began in the world of telecommunication companies and digital businesses. In my professional practice, I have always felt motivated to solve problems with creative, innovative ideas and solutions. I strongly believe that public policies are a powerful vehicle for social transformation. My purpose is to contribute my energy and experience, from wherever I am, in order to generate a positive impact on this transformation. Art and culture enthusiast, human rights activist, and an aspiring agent of change for gender equality.
When I started my career as a lawyer in the mid-1990s, I made my first online purchase with great uncertainty. That is when I discovered a fascinating intersection between the Internet and its potential to promote global commerce and inclusion, and my career as a lawyer. Since then, technology has been my passion. I completed graduate studies in technology law abroad and I have provided advice, for more than 10 years, to governments, multinational companies and entrepreneurs in order to address the challenges that digital regulation imposes. I teach in various Peruvian universities and enjoy writing and lecturing on my areas of interest.
On my way through life, I want to contribute to improve people’s quality of life from my area of work. I am a Colombian, Peruvian at heart for six years now, and Latin American woman who believes that teamwork and a clear purpose can have an impact and lead to real changes. Being part of Niubox allows me to combine professional challenges and development with humanity.
I have always enjoyed being part of companies that have as their main purpose making this world a better place. My education had a humanistic and people centered approach, that is why in Niubox I find an opportunity to make an impact and contribute with this philosophy.
Privacy, Tecnology and Competition analyst
I have always believed that law should continuously adapt to social changes. Nowadays, technology gives us the opportunity for a necessary change that brings innovation closer to the legal world. I have a bachelor’s degree in law, with experience in intellectual property, unfair competition and consumer protection, and I am willing to keep learning and to build bridges between law and innovation for the economic and social development of my country.
Law is versatile and its study should be the same. Learning is an endless source of adventures and realities not yet known. Currently, gray areas of Law persist and this results in the classic mystery that, in history, has been the first step for major discoveries. Precisely, I am characterized by having made incursions into various unknown fields, such as mediation, negotiation, and defense of human rights. My aim is to generate the rethinking of legal science through constructive criticism, a sociological analysis, and the study of new approaches. It is the time to start the journey in Digital Law.
Business Development Coordinator
I always knew that Law would be a career full of adventures and, above all, learning. However, I never thought that it could give me such a solid basis to find my own professional path. At present, I am a lawyer at heart but I have been developing businesses and commercial areas for eight years. Being part of NIUBOX makes me feel that I can bring the best of both worlds together and contribute with all my experience in order to grow cooperatively.
I have always considered myself to be a learning enthusiast. I like exploring new horizons and having a positive impact on any environment in which I participate. For this reason, my main motivation in Law is offering innovative, creative and holistic solutions that are more than just conventional prescriptions. I greatly enjoy projects that evoke our most human side and invite us to strengthen our spirit of social service. I am convinced that the most valuable lives are those that are not lived for themselves. The world moves forward and we move with it. I think that we should not stop being curious about the ineffable or creating what seems to be impossible
Public and Regulatory Affairs Intern
My aim has always been to make a positive impact on society and I am convinced that I can do it by working on public policies and regulations which allow us to maximize the potential of technology for the benefit of all. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Law from Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. I love musicals, coffee, and science fiction movies and TV shows.
Juan Sebastián Salcedo
Public and Regulatory Affairs Coordinator
In 2013, at the invitation of an economics professor, I joined a team of engineers, lawyers and economists of the regulation and competition area of a telecommunications agency in Ecuador. This first approach with the sector allowed me to understand the importance of creating public policies, rules and regulations based on evidence and collaborative processes. My previous experience as a regulator, policy maker and business representative allows me to understand the needs of the public and private sectors, and to build relationships of trust based on ethical liaison processes. By nature, I am a curious person who seeks to gain not only knowledge but also new experiences by traveling and exploring the mountains and volcanoes of the Andes
Anita de la Piedra
Privacy, Technology and Competition Coordinator
Thinking about the possibilities of inclusion and development that a digital society can contribute to peoples’ lives is what motivates me the most about my work. I am a lawyer graduated from UPC and I am studying for a master’s degree on compliance and personal data. In my professional career, I have specialized in competition, consumer protection and personal data. I am excited about being part of projects which involve thinking out of the box in order to have a positive impact on other people.
Privacy, Technology and Competition Coordinator
I am inspired by the impact that technology and innovation can have on the development of society. I have been fascinated by how Law has adapted, with flexibility and creativity, to the requirements of this driving force of change. I am a lawyer graduated from Universidad Católica San Pablo de Arequipa and, during my professional career, I have advised various organizations on matters related to competition law, intellectual property, and personal data protection. In order to take an academic approach on efficient regulation, I decided to pursue master’s studies at Universidad de Salamanca. My motivation is to focus the practice of law on the application of new technologies, from a perspective that is respectful of human rights.
