Leopoldo Alejandro Betancourt Lopez has taken the unpaved path to develop his career in the oil industry. He studied economics and business administration at Suffolk University in Massachusetts, and from there returned to Venezuela to start his professional life. That’s brought him to a point where his personal and professional ambitions overlap, allowing him to focus on technology and how to implement it for the benefit of the industry.
Leopoldo Alejandro Betancourt Lopez has taken business as an opportunity to innovate wherever possible. It’s an approach that’s entrepreneurial in nature, but his application of corporate entrepreneurism looks to venture out in the world, gather in formation and technology, and bring that back to the company. With what he’s gathered and learned along the way, he seeks ways to help the company grow and adapt so that they remain relevant as the market fractionally aligns with a number of factors influencing the future.

Leopoldo Alejandro Betancourt Lopez has worked for some notable energy companies in the past, like ICC-OEOC, BGB Energy, and the Gurucega Group. Working for big players in the US and the EU, gave him an opportunity to find out how they work, an how their counterparts in Africa and Latin America had to work more closely with them. That’s why the bulk of his time he acted as something of a bridge between companies he worked for in Latin America with those based in the UK and the US. That didn’t last forever. In 2007, along with Pedro Trebbau Lopez, he realized it was time to go on his own and focused his attention on developing thermoelectric capabilities.
He developed his entrepreneurial skills working on energy in Spain. That put him in direct contact with their technological infrastructure, making it impossible to ignore how much countries like Venezuela needed to develop in order to remain competitive. Now his efforts are geared towards giving Latin American companies the resources they need to work more closely with technology there, rather than forcing them to journey to the US or Germany to truly embrace technology.
Leopoldo Alejandro Betancourt Lopez is currently looking to make his investment portfolio more diverse, checking out the tech advancements in energy and all it has to offer. It’s what excites him most, knowing that his experience with technology have a place in energy, and that with his inclusion more companies can be prepared to contend with all the future has to offer.
