GUSTAVO: After a few years of business development for small to midsize oil & gas service providers, Gustavo recognized that they were inadequately served within the industry for technology solutions. Looking to change this, Gustavo set out to explore ways of improving this gap in the industry.
JESSICA: While working as a welder's helper building pipeline for URS Flint (currently AECOM), Jessica led an easy to implement, sustainability project to recycle all metal, paper, and plastic on-site. This was roughly 90% of what was previously being thrown away and reduced waste fees by 50%. This left her wondering how she could positivity contribute to sustainability and efficiency in the oil & gas industry.
Gustavo and Jessica met in Shanghai at Hult International Business School in 2014. They teamed up during their MBA in a 10-month entrepreneurial project to tackle predictive maintenance in the oil & gas industry. After graduation, Jessica and Gustavo continued working together and established Pandata Tech in Houston, January 2016.
