Tech and music entrepreneur, Bernardo graduated from Pontificia Universidad Javeriana with a degree in Industrial Engineering. In 2008, a pioneer in his country, he launched Yimup 1.0, an online music store of the local music scene, activated with several methods of payments including: prepaid download cards, online payments, download codes and other options.

In 2010 Yimup restructured, changing its business model and technology by implementing a cloud–computing infrastructure. The business core of Yimup 2.0 is oriented to offer “cloud services for musicians”, looking to empower artists so they can self manage their music business as they want, without any third party involvement. Bernardo currently serves as Executive Director of Yimup, accomplishing several recognitions in different startup contests as a high impact startup with global potential, such as:
