Higinio O. Maycotte

As the great-grandson of the Mexican General who shot off Pancho Villa's leg, H.O. embodies the spirit of a true revolutionary. His background is in starting up innovative companies from scratch, such as RateGenius, Flightlock (a travel safety company purchased by Control Risks), Finetooth (a contract management solution, now doing business as Mumboe), the Texas Tribune (a non-profit, nonpartisan public media organization) and now Umbel a company focused on empowering consumers online. And despite his ancestor's sharpshooting tendencies, he's one of the friendliest guys you'll ever meet.
