Igor has spent 6 years building startup scenes in unusual places (like the Brazilian rainforest) and sectors (like agritech, edtech and cosmetics). He designed and implemented startup programmes involving more than 5,000 entrepreneurs. As an investor, Igor exited two companies, both pioneer startups in the locations where they were created. He got tired of the way people were talking about entrepreneurship ecosystems and decided to dedicate two years to studying the dynamics of complex systems (with the European Master in System Dynamics) until he recently took a position as project manager at Startup Heatmap. A fan of the type of music people call noise, he is based in the sunny Lisbon.
