Company Snapshot

Leveraging Francisco’s background in hydraulic engineering and a state-of-the-art R&D department, Seinco is developing new solutions to address the 150 million South Americans who lack drinkable water and wastewater management. Seinco holds a patent for water-treatment devices that can produce drinkable water or recycle wastewater at 70% of the cost of traditional methods while increasing efficiency by 80%.

Since selection by Endeavor, company revenues have grown by 367%.

Endeavor and Seinco

Thanks in large part to an eMBA project and local mentors, Francisco revolutionized his business model, shifting the entire business from a consulting approach to a product approach. The new strategy led to significant growth, and Francisco credits much of his recent success to Endeavor. In addition to local mentoring and the Global eMBA program, Francisco was advised by an Ernst & Young Fellow and participated in the Entrepreneur Summit.

Francisco remains an active role model in the Uruguayan network and speaks on behalf of Endeavor at conferences and events.
