THE FOUNDERS

CRISTINA CONSUEGRA
Cristina was born and raised in Colombia, and was lucky to grow up in a family equally passionate for travel and adventure. She lived in South Africa for almost two years before moving to Canada, where she earned a degree in Business Administration and worked as a management consultant in Toronto. Her last venture in Canada was pursuing an MBA at McGill University, after which she intended to continue her management-consulting career. However, after spending her 4-month summer break traveling through Europe, Asia, Peru, and Colombia, Cristina realized that she had no choice but to pursue her passion for travel. She spent the next year writing her thesis, Galavanta’s business plan, packed her bags, and moved back home after living in Canada for 9 years and visiting over 30 countries.

 

ALEXIS PRADIE
Alexis was born and raised in France, where he spent his summers on the french countryside hiking the calanques of Marseille and sailing along the Mediterranean coast, and his winters in the French Alps, skiing and snowboarding. Despite an early start at a professional career with the first division football team, Olympique de Marseille, Alexis spent his formative years in the USA completing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. A few years later, Alexis moved to Montreal, Canada, where he completed his MBA at McGill University and worked for top advertising agency Cossette. The idea of starting his own business was always there, only was missing the opportunity to leave it all behind and move to Colombia…!
