Who we are

So far the Placeholdr Team is comprised (so far) by me Leonardo Nunes, Economist and Entrepreneur, Ive always had a deep passion for learning new things and starting various projects. I founded and ran for over 5 years a Biotech Startup developing a solution for Lactose intolerance. After that for 2 years I was the founder and chief researcher at a Think Tank focused on the 4th industrial revolution in Latin America.

So I’ve always tried to keep myself learning and aware of the technological and scientific advances but also its repercussions in the economy and our society, as well as having an understanding of the different stakeholders involved in the disruptions we have seen and we will be seeing in the coming years.
