Giselle’s main driving force is to help close the economic inequality gap experienced in Latin America through technology-based entrepreneurship ventures that have a high social and environmental impact. Her most recent venture, GECO, creates 100% biodegradable bioplastic made from orange waste. This product has the potential to be applied in biomedicine, packaging and agriculture as it is an ecological and versatile material that can replace the plastic pollutants derived from petroleum. Giselle hopes to grow GECO’s impact in the future by increasing the industrial production to satisfy a larger customer base.
