OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER IS NATIONALLY RECOGNIZED SERIAL ENTRPRENEUR AND TECH FOUNDER – SANTIAGO JARAMILLO.
Early in his life, Santiago immigrated to Florida with his family to escape the rampant violence of late 1990s Colombia. Through this defining experience, he learned the importance of adaptability and grit, which have been grounding principles for him throughout his business career.
A serial entrepreneur, Jaramillo has developed and grown multiple small and midsize companies. Most notably, as the founder and CEO of mobile app platform Bluebridge, he grew the company from his college dorm room to become the premier app platform to churches and tourism destinations across the country. Under his leadership, the company grew to over 45 employees in four years and nearly 500 customers across the world. In November 2016, Bluebridge church and tourism was acquired by PushPay and Simpleview, respectively, for a combined $8 million dollars.
He currently leads a team of engagement experts to provide more reliable employee engagement insights for better decision making. He has spoken to and trained thousands of CEOs and HR leaders across small, mid-market, and Fortune 500 companies on the importance and business value of employee engagement. Last month, Emplify closed on over a $7.5 million outside Series A capital round with several institutional investors.
