Through her company LiSim, founded in 1996, Lilian and her team offer high-value, tailor-made scoring models to SMEs in the financial, telecom and public services sector. Powered by Lilian’s high energy, passion, and drive, LiSim has captured over 50% market share in Colombia and been recognized by the IFC as a regional leader in risk analysis. Trained in mathematics and systems engineering, Lilian is both an important female entrepreneurial role model in her native Colombia and an intellectual leader on a global scale.
