Our history

Innovation, Vision, Technology

 

I founded Innovitech to consolidate these three vital forces into a single organization capable of breaking down silos between institutions and businesses, knowledge and talent, and the perceptions of distinct generations. Thanks to the women and men who have joined us over the years, Innovitech has succeeded in reinventing universities, making cities smarter and catalyzing new businesses. Today, I am proud of what we have achieved together to create a more sustainable and inclusive ecosystem and society.
