Endeavor Entrepreneur Nico Jose “Nix” Nolledo, founder of Xurpas, was named the Philippines’ EY Entrepreneur of the Year for 2015. Xurpas is Southeast Asia’s largest listed consumer tech company that is pioneering a variety of mobile and digital solutions. Since the company’s IPO in 2014, Nix has become a leading entrepreneur in the region’s growing tech sector and represented the Philippines at the annual EY World Entrepreneur of the Year program held in Monaco in June.
The World Entrepreneur Of The Year Award program was created by EY, a global partner of Endeavor, to recognize the accomplishments of entrepreneurs around the globe. It builds on EY’s more than 29 years of success in running Entrepreneur Of The Year Award programs in more than 60 countries around the world. Each year, the Entrepreneur Of The Year country winners join together in Monaco to be inducted in to the World Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame and vie for the EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year title.
Xurpas develops digital products for mobile consumers, working with telecommunications companies to market online casual games, information-on-demand services, messaging applications and other content customized to the needs and tastes of domestic users. Fluxion, a Xurpas subsidiary, creates mobile platform solutions for government agencies and leading private enterprises. A true “technopreneur,” Nix is the Chairman of Fluxion and has investments in more than 55 technology businesses.
He got his start in the consumer technology sector in 1999 when he founded PinoyExchange.com, an online community used by Filipinos around the world. Since then, he has founded, funded and served on the boards of several technology companies such as Rappler.com, a social news network; Gurango Software, a multinational business software company; and MyRegalo.com, an online flower and gift delivery service.
Nix is also the founding Director and former President of the Internet and Mobile Marketing Association of the Philippines (IMMAP), the founding Director of the Digital Commerce Association of the Philippines (DCOM) and a member of the Philippine chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO). He was selected by Endeavor in 2015 and has since received key mentoring services and introductions to investors from across the network.
