Meet Jonathan Lewy, Managing Partner at Investo. In 2010 Jonathan co-founded MiOrden.com. At the end of 2011 the team sold the company to SinDelantal.com and realized that they lacked strategic advice during our venture. At the end of 2012 they decided to create a VC fir that would help other founders where they were lacking. Investo is a seed capital firm investing in tech startups with high-growth potential. The companies they’ve funded have gone on to create over a 1000 jobs in different parts of the world. They help startups with business development and programmers recruiting. They also provide seed capital and other strategic advice throughout their partnership with the startups.
