Sergio immigrated to Chelsea, Mass. in the late 1980s, when it was a major drug trafficking gateway and riddled with gang warfare. Even at eight years old, he realized that “The Land of Opportunity” was a relative term.
After college, Sergio co-founded and led product & engineering for AtmaGo, an award-winning platform for low-income communities which has served 8M+ users globally.
He was founding partner of Boom Factor, a Silicon Valley-based innovation firm. He also served as Director of User Experience for Khosla-backed Scribd.com, where he helped grow traffic from 2.5M to 6.3M monthly users.
Sergio holds B.A. degrees in physics and economics from Dartmouth College and an M.A. in development economics from Boston University. He also did research in quantum computing (Grover Search Algorithm) at the graduate level.
