Jorge Fernandes

Luck takes a lot of work.

Jorge is an IT curious since a child. After Maths, programming and learning became his passion. He was not even in college and he was already working on IT.

With an Informatics Engineering degree and an executive master in Project Management, Jorge is a great asset for any business model. A great insider in this sector, his experience allows him to be able to communicate with know-how with all the different players in the IT chain value. Jorge is an IT project manager at a telecommunications company in the corporate and B2B area. His biggest achievement was creating his own company and learning what not to do, and turning a defeat into a valuable lesson. Finding growing opportunities for companies through IT is his drive.

Jorge is very ambitious, but believes that good things come to those who work. He is always looking for new challenges and nothing stops him. Known for taking his passions to the limit, his love for watches made him wear a specially engraved watch instead of a wedding ring. His favourite place in the world is New York a city which is, as he describes it, a lesson in Economy by itself.
