About Ongresso

Our Story

A company born from a passion for Latin America

Few places on earth welcome visitors with such warmth, authentic generosity and joie de vivre as Latin America. These qualities were the reason why our Swiss founders, Daniel Breitenmoser and Ulrich Hinterberger, developed a passion for the region and started to build local connections over 20 years ago. When they finally decided to turn their passion into a business, these connections were the foundation of what has become a deep network of senior experts across Latin America and in many verticals. Today, we leverage our excellent network for the benefit of our clients.

The founders chose Colombia to start Ongresso in 2010, betting on the untapped potential of the infamous South American nation. Their hopes were not only fulfilled, but exceeded, as Colombia underwent a historic transformation from torn nation to regional business hub and tourist magnet. Soon after its foundation, Ongresso started to expand to other countries to support foreign businesses looking for a reliable and well-connected partner across Latin America. We are proud to have become the partner of choice of many global industry leaders who rely on us as their expert facilitator to accelerate their market expansion in the region of our choice and passion.

Our Purpose

Creating a brighter future for Latin America

We believe that responsible businesses are the most effective actors to impact and improve people’s lives. They create attractive jobs, introduce innovative products and services, raise the bar of sustainability and condemn corruption. By helping accelerate the growth of such companies in Latin America we contribute to the creation of a fairer, brighter future for the region we love.
