Pol Fañanás

Investment Manager

Pol is a former tech startup operator and one of the newest members of the Kibo team. He is also Co-Founder of Views (media project based on interviews with top tech, startup and investment professionals), Included VC Fellow (Fellowship backed by tier 1 VCs focused on improving diversity and inclusion by empowering high potential outliers) and Teaching Assistant at ESADE University.

Prior to Kibo, Pol was an early employee and Strategy & Finance Manager Validated ID (esignature and decentralized identity backed by Caixa Capital Risc, Randstad and Cuatrecasas) where he helped the founders build a B2B SaaS and scale up to 1000+ customers, 6 digit MRR and 45+ people team. Previously he worked at fintech startups Kantox (FX/payments fintech with $40M+ funding by Partech and Idinvest among others) and Loanbook (marketplace lending platform with $50M+ loans provided).

He holds a Business Administration degree from EUS Excellence Group of the University of Barcelona and a post graduate degree in Computer Science specializing in Blockchain Technologies from Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya.

As a result of a personal challenging path, Pol is driven to help people in underprivileged situations, which moved him to volunteer in different social impact initiatives during the last years, such as with the Missionaries of Charity in Nepal, in an Orphanage in Palestine and in the Spanish prison system.
