Hi, I'm Rodrigo—a Marketing student at Concordia University with a hands-on approach to startups, tech companies, and mobile applications.

Future of Work Student Challenge

The pitch for this project won first place in the entrepreneurship challenge "Future of Work" by TECHNATION in collaboration with Google Cloud and Mole in a Minute.

In this project, I took the role of a project lead to coordinate the project's activities such as research, development, and delivery. The four main activities I participate in this project are organizing the internal teams workflow and documentation, creating business plan, creating a pitch deck and participating in the research.



Samir Almousawi

Senior Analyst at McGill University

Rodrigo is a very fast learner and self-motivated talent. He understood the importance of automation and security needs and researched best-in-class solutions. He didn't accept the status quo of the existing set of tools and insisted on finding a better solution and introduced, not once, but twice, a new testing tool that fulfills automation requirements without compromising the McGill directives and security guidelines. It was a pleasure having Rodrigo on the team and would certainly love to work with him again.
