His extensive experience includes being part of the founding teams of some of the most well-known digital projects in Argentina and Latin America, including Clarín Digital (Argentina’s largest newspaper’s website), Patagon.com (a financial community sold to Banco Santander for 750M), Internet Argentina (the first Argentine ISP to provide ADSL) and Edunexo (provider of an SaaS platform to administer public and private educational institutions in Latin America and Spain). He also held the position of head of R&D at ElSitio.com, where he led a team of 25 developers.
 


Vision

His vision can be found in a recent interview conducted by Dinis Guarda. He said, amongst others subjects:

Childhood; “I started learning tech when I was 11. I learned everything by myself. At 9 years, I started going to the slums in Buenos Aires to do social work with my mother. So for me, the social transformation was another prevalent matter”.

Argentina; “Argentina is a very complex country. It is so diverse, we are always fluctuating between an individualistic mindset to communism, but not in a positive way. As a society, we have a permanent dichotomy. We have one government that looks at individual welfare, but we have the other which focuses solely on the community”.

Blockchain: “Our long-term goal in 5/7 years is the end game of having an ecosystem serving hundreds and millions of people. They have to have a value proposition and scaling restraints. We have the context to test technologies, not on a financial scale. Validating the scaling potential”.
 


Recognition and Awards
His track record includes being part of the founding teams of Clarín Digital (main Argentina's newspaper website), Patagon.com (financial community sold to Banco Santander for 750M), Internet Argentina (first Argentinean ISP to provide ADSL), Edunexo (provider of a SaaS platform to administer public and private educational institutions in Latin America and Spain).
