EveryMundo

Tell us about you. What is your business background? What was the driving force behind you becoming an entrepreneur? Is this the first business you’ve founded?

 

I worked as an investment banker after college for 2 years, then went back to business school for my MBA. I then worked as a talent scout in the music industry while working on a start up with a friend; eventually I found EveryMundo and have been here ever since (9 years). The driving force to become an entrepreneur was a combination of enjoying building something and enjoying the feel that a lot rides on my ability to performance or deliver, but at least I can control it. EveryMundo is not my first company – before this, I had a yet-to-be-born luxury beer company called Casencia; a start-up consultancy called Cassel Plasencia; and a music artist management company called 1L Music.

Seth Cassel, President and Partner
Why did you choose Miami to start your company?

 

I am fourth generation Miami. When I moved back in 2009, I knew I would do something entrepreneurial, but I did not know what. I choose Miami, and then started a company, but I didn’t choose Miami to start a company. Though now I would, given the available talent and growth of the city.

 

What is the biggest challenge that you’ve overcome since then?

 

That’s hard – it’s a series of small challenges that never stop and keep changing.

 

Where do you see your company in 3 years? In 5?

 

In 3 years, EveryMundo is the global leader in on-demand user experience technology for the travel and transport space; in 5 years, it will extend to more major global verticals, such as healthcare, telecom, financial services, energy, and others.

 

 

Where do you see the future of Miami?

 

I see further professionalization of the city, which will attract more talent, which will result in better businesses, which will lead to a never ending virtuous cycle of growth.

 

Favorite local place to take visiting friends for a Miami experience?
