Miguel Santo Amaro is the Co-Founder of Uniplaces – the trusted, global brand for student accommodation. Miguel launched, in 2013, Uniplaces.com with his co-founders, Mariano Kostelec and Ben Grech from Argentina and UK respectively. Since then, they helped thousands of students from over 130 countries to booking their accommodation completely online, generating over US$8 million in booking values. They recently announced the world’s first crowd-funded accommodation scholarship in order to empower global student mobility – “for us it’s not just a scholarship, it’s a movement to help empower students to follow their dreams”. Uniplaces has raised, so far, US$5 million and is preparing the next round of funding to scale globally. Miguel is a Global Shaper from the World Economic Forum and graduated from Babson College with a Masters in International Business (Global Entrepreneurship Program) after having lived and studied in five different countries across US, Europe and Asia. He is a big football fan (S.L. Benfica!) and currently splits his time between London and Lisbon (the trending hub in the global startup scene).
