Founder, Chief Executive Officer & Member of Board of Directors
Ricardo is a natural-born entrepreneur. Passionate about taking on new challenges and with a background in computer engineering and management and business administration, he sold his first company at the age of 22. This led to the creation and development of various companies, predominantly in the field of technology with a strong bent towards innovation.
His son Richi’s brain tumour diagnosis in 2011 forced him to abandon all his plans and move to Boston to save his life. Thankfully that battle has been won, but the fight continues.
Ricardo discovered the obstacles that existed, as well as the lack of provision and support in this field through his own personal experience, and decided to create the Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization established in the US and with links around the world.
Ricardo also sits on the Pediatric Patient Advisory Committee at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
