  1. Laura was born as a leader. Laura Urquizu joined Red Points in 2014 as CEO & Partner. In the past 7 years, Laura has driven the company business model forward transforming it into a globally renowned SAAS solution. Following her vision, Red Points has developed its business model to serve global enterprises of all types in online brand protection, digital piracy, counterfeiting, grey market & other online infractions. Thanks to her strong leadership, sales and clients have grown exponentially and over $64 million has been raised in investment with some of the most important capital venture funds in the world such as Mangrove, Northzone, Eight Roads & Summit Partners. But not only that. In regards to team management, since she is been the CEO of Red Points, she has shown her own tactics in order to get the most out of the team: motivation, execution, celebrating team’s accomplishments, sense of urgency and purpose, fostering values, clear and transparent communication, effective delegation, inspiring team collaboration, and offering a clear vision and understanding of the company’s culture. It’s not that easy that women become leaders in Tech companies, and she not only achieved that but also made sure women are represented in our company as 45%, which is incredible.

  2. Laura is a veteran of the venture capital scene. She helped to pioneer the space and led one of the first VC funds in seed capital in Spain when the ecosystem was still at its infancy. During her time as a VC, she invested over 600,000 between 2007 and 2009 in fast-growing start-ups. Under her lead Red Points underwent a significant transformation, expanded its brand protection remit and shifted to a SaaS model. In doing so, the company got closer to becoming a household name in the brand intelligence market. Laura has been successfully expanding Red Points’ global footprint, driving the company revenue, and employee headcount which has now reached 200 worldwide compared to 15 when she first joined less than 5 years ago. Under Laura’s leadership, Red Points raised $64 million worth of international funding.
