Maria Afonso Pereira
Finance Director Extinctus Enterprise
Hello, my name is Maria Pereira and I am the Finance Director of Extinctus Enterprise. Extinctus Enterprise is a company that was founded in the past October of 2017 as a result of the devastating fires that spread throughout Portugal. These fires inspired me and my fellow teammates: Ta?s Fran?a (Human Resources Director), Margarida Machado (Operations Director), Diogo Vale (President) and Matilde Mendes (Marketing Director) to develop the Ignis Capsule. The Ignis Capsule is an underground device that prevents the propagation of forest fires. In case of fire it detects an increase in temperature and transmits the data collected to our mobile app available to the nearest fire department system.
We started this idea in the Junior Achievement competition and ended up representing Portugal in the Company of the Year Competition in 2018 in Serbia where we were distinguished with the AT&T Excellence in IT Award.
