Meet The Founder
Hi, I'm Mario
A creative director and technology nerd with over 20 years of technical experience to bring to the table. I absolutely love meeting fellow entrepreneurs and collaborating with them to find solutions to their challenges.
Minimo is a web design agency dedicated to helping small businesses build and maintain websites to grow their online presence. We take over all the backend work, such as web hosting, design, maintenance, and support, so you can focus on your core operations.
My Early Beginnings: From Humble Roots
Minimo is the product of my passion for technology and design. Looking back at my humble roots, I came to the United States as an immigrant from Peru.
Prior to founding my company, I worked in the travel industry for 25 years with American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) and Microsoft. These opportunities allowed me to travel the world, and experience many different cultures firsthand—places like India, Japan, Brazil, Venezuela, Cambodia, South Korea, Jamaica, Italy, and many others.
Through my time with Amex and Microsoft, I discovered my love for tech. I also received my AA degree in web design and worked with other tech experts and giants in my field. But when the pandemic hit, global travel came to a halt, and I was laid off.
How Minimo Started
A few years ago, I was doing freelance work in web design when I suddenly received a call from a client named Chris. He owned a car service business that involved driving travelers from the Seattle area to the airport in Lincoln Town Cars. While he had many Town Cars in place, he was missing one important thing—a website.
With this dilemma, he contacted me to build him a website with a reservation system to land Microsoft as his biggest client. I completed the job in just a few weeks, and suffice to say, Chris secured the Microsoft contract and found the reservation system helpful in growing his business.
During this time, I also continued maintaining and optimizing his site to drive more traffic and attract customers.
Through this experience, I realized that I wanted to use my tech and business skills for a much larger purpose—that is, to help entrepreneurs succeed in their ventures. So when the pandemic hit and I lost my job, I took this as a sign to start my own web design business. And this was how Minimo was born.
