Carlos Rodriguez

NCA Entrepreneur


I come from entrepreneurial families on both sides. My grandparents had family businesses, so I grew up immersed in the world of SMEs (Small to Medium sized Enterprise) and always had a passion for them. For that reason, I always dreamt of having my own business and after graduation, started my own farming, processing and exporting company. I then moved to Boston for my MBA and focus on entrepreneurship, where I learned about Search Funds and ETA (Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition). I then partnered with the owners of a leading Plant Health Care Company to manage, grow, and sell the business. Now that I have completed my first exit, I have the energy and knowledge to continue my entrepreneurial journey at a larger scale.

                Key Skills

  • Team Work
  • Strategic Thinking
  • Adaptability to uncertain scenarios
  • Problem Solving
  • Long Term vision


I want to acquire a great company and take it to the next level, enhancing the legacy of the previous owner. I have a passion for the green industry where I developed my career, and I will be searching in Plant Health Care, Landscaping, Agriculture, and Food Supply Chain

Geographically I will be searching in the US, where I have been living since 2015.

My contribution

I have already managed, grew, and sold a US- based company that was a leader in its industry, thus I have the experience to take a company to the next level. In my previous experience I leveraged my 12+ years as CEO managing SMEs.

Having developed my whole career in entrepreneurship and SMEs, I know how to optimize the limited resources these businesses have, compared to larger corporations- which has prepared me to be always “hands on” in every problem that might arise.
