IMAGINE Leaders – Francisco Martin-Rayo

Francisco Martin-Rayo

Helios Artificial Intelligence, CEO & Co-Founder

I went to UPenn, where I graduated with a BSc. from Wharton and B.A. in International Relations, and launched two start-ups in the tech and ag space. After exiting those, I joined a start-up in financial services – it was an incredible scale-up experience, in three years we went from $0 to $25B in AUM. Then I went to Harvard for grad school, where I started an NGO that gave university scholarships to refugees in Pakistan (I ran that for six years). Afterwards I started a few mobile app companies and ended up at BCG, where I led global digital transformations as a Principal. I finally came back ‘home’, and went back to my roots as an operator, joining an AI start-up as the Chief Commercial Officer in 2021. Post that exit I launched Helios as CEO and co-founder in Dec 2022, and it’s been the most fun of my career yet 🙂

I'm interested in a future Oxford Experience
