Upcoming Events At This Venue

April 13, 2015

The topic of Mr. Fabre’s lunch talk will be High Impact Entrepreneurship:  Lessons from Around the World. 

More details to follow.

 

In February 2011, Fernando assumed the role of president of Endeavor Global.  Immediately prior, he was the Managing Director of Endeavor Mexico since 2004 and a part-time faculty professor of Entrepreneurship at Anahuac University.

In 2002, he and his mentor and professor Dr. Richard L. Smith were  appointed by Mexico President Vicente Fox under the Partnership for Prosperity Program to develop a set of guidelines to build an entrepreneurial culture in Mexico. Among these guidelines were recommendations that helped shape the creation of the Mexican association of venture capital funds; the creation of Fondo Pyme (a US$600m a year government program to support SMEs); and more recently the creation of a US$50m a year program to launch SME IPOs in the Mexican Bolsa (stock market).

He currently serves on the board of the National Committee of Innovation which oversees a US$5 billion budget of the Mexican government on innovation; and on the board of directors of Lumni Inc, a leading student lending program.

He holds a master degree in Economics from Claremont Graduate University in California and an MBA and BA in Managerial Economics from Universidad Anahuac del Sur.

In 2003 the magazine Lideres Mexicanos called him a “Leader of the Future”; in 2005 Fortuna called him the “top entrepreneur supporter in Mexico”; and in 2007 Expansion called him one of the “30 under 30” Mexican leaders.

In 2009 he became a Kauffman Fellow by the Center for Venture Education in Silicon Valley, CA.
