I have a background on engineering, energy and climate change. I’ve written a short book on the future of energy and was Argentina’s delegate on Energy and Climate Change at the Y8, the youth G8-G20 summit in London, 2013.
All my professional experience has been in tech startups: I’ve co-founded and led Trimaker, a leading 3D printing company that develops & designs technology in Buenos Aires, manufactures in China and distributes around the world. Before that I co-founded and led Bixti, part of the NXTP Labs TechStars network that was acquired by Elo7 in 2012 funded by Accel Partners and Insight Ventures, acquired by Etsy in 2021. I was Regional Business Development Manager of Elo7 with over 100 employees and +14 million visitors a month.
I was one of the winners of the K50 2015 (Silicon Valley) prize as one the top 50 young innovators of the world and also awarded as one of the top 100 young innovators of the world by the Open Innovations Forum (Moscow) in 2014.
