I’m the CEO of http://torre.co. At Torre, we’re building a new platform that will enable everyone to find fulfilling professional opportunities easily. Previously, I co-founded and bootstrapped http://voice123.com in 2002 (the first and largest global marketplace for voice-overs with over 200,000 voice actors and 100,000 buyers), as well as http://bunnyinc.com in 2011 (a mission-critical outsourcing solution for writing, voice recordings, and translations), with my wife Tania Zapata. With hundreds of thousands of users, availability in five languages, and team members in 10+ countries, both companies are growing steadily. Together, Tania and I have angel invested in 20+ tech companies and have been based in the USA since 1998. I joined Shark Tank Colombia as an investor in 2017. With the goal of giving back to society, I also co-founded the BogoDev and BogoTech communities in Colombia (for software developers and technologists respectively). Then, in 2016, I founded http://neocratia.org with the goal of upgrading the way the laws governing our societies are created. I was honored by MIT’s Technology Review with the TR35 Top Colombian Innovator of the Year award in 2012, with the High-Impact Entrepreneur title by Endeavor in 2013, and named Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum in 2015. I’ve written several practical guides and frameworks: https://medium.com/tag/torrenegra-frameworks/latest
