About me: Pablo was born and raised in Santiago, Chile, where he studied Industrial Engineering at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. After graduating, Pablo wanted to maximise his knowledge and gain international experience, so he worked as an associate consultant at Bain & Company, in both the São Paulo and Santiago offices. Although that experience was very rewarding, he wanted to explore something different and went into tech at Cornershop, a Chilean startup focusing on grocery delivery. There, he worked on the strategy team at the forefront of Cornershop’s expansion path and the company is now on its way to becoming the first Chilean unicorn.

When choosing between a business school in the US and LBS, Pablo chose to study in London. His motivations for this were the incredible faculty and flexible programme, but most importantly the diverse and exciting community both at LBS and in London.

Outside of class, Pablo is an active Out in Business Club member as chief of staff. He is very passionate about LGBTQ+ representation and inclusion in professional settings and wants to transfer the knowledge he gathers at LBS to other organisations. You can also find him travelling a lot!

Three topics I can be approached about: LGBTQ+ representation and inclusion; technology; consulting.
