About the Speaker

Israel I. Hernandez is a serial entrepreneur from Mexico who now makes his home in Miami. Even before graduating from Insituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores in Monterrey in 2000, he incorporated his first business that offered multimedia solutions and video animations in 1996. By 1998, he had co-founded a second business specializing in web hosting, web design, connecting legacy systems to the Internet, and developing web-based applications. They became the second-largest Internet domain sellers in Mexico and developed the country's first Internet-based electronic banking system. In 2005, Israel and his partners spun off a division focused on credit-card transactions into Merchant Services of Mexico, known commercially as Punto Clave. After a period of rapid growth, a French company called Edenred, with a presence in 62 countries, acquired Punto Clave.

Israel decided to move to Miami in 2014 where, with his brother Omar, he decided to build a trading platform from the ground up. First, they connected all the pieces like data providers and a multinational stock brokerage. Then they coding an algorithmic trading strategy that is up and running with real money. Now they are inviting traders with successful strategies to join them to convert those strategies into code and integrate them into the platform. They are also inviting AI enthusiasts to develop AI models from the more than 1.5 billion data points in the system.
