Gabriel was born and raised in Sao Paulo. With a BBA from Fundação Getulio Vargas, he got involved with the startup environment, being able to analyze and support several startups in Brazil. In his view, the dynamic and collaborative workplace, along with the experimentation approach to every project, turns a startup into a perfect lab for innovation.
During his working experience, he started attending to gatherings on environmental and social issues to understand the world’s real problems. After realizing we need more people focusing on these issues to create a desirable future, he decided to make a career shift. He believes the same startup formula can be applied to social companies, with technology becoming a driver of not only profit maximization, but also positive impact. Some of his interests are sports, traveling, reading and meditating.
