José del Barrio
José is a Founding Partner at Samaipata based in Madrid. Previously, he was the co-founder of the leading food-delivery platform in Spain, La Nevera Roja, which sold to Rocket Internet for $100 million in 2015.
José has also worked at PWC and Accenture in Strategy and M&A Advisory. Notably, he led the expansion project of a hospital in Latin America where he came across Samaipata, a valley in the middle of the Bolivian jungle, known for being a micro world, home to over 25 nationalities and the root of our values in diversity and team work. That’s where our name came from!
Outside of work, he is a happy husband and proud father of four little girls. He’s a keen tennis player and ironman athlete while at the same time, helplessly curious and constantly fascinated.
