Career Conversation with Yale World Fellow, Jorge Soto
March 24 @ 9:00 am
Join us for an informal career and professional journey conversation with 2020 Yale World Fellow, Jorge Soto. Jorge Soto is a serial entrepreneur focusing on the use of technology for positive impact. He was the chief technology officer and co-founder of Miroculus, a biotechnology company that seeks to democratize access to complex molecular tests for treatment and prevention of diseases. Jorge founded Miroculus with the vision of reducing the entry barrier in cost, development, complexity, and increasing access to genetic sequencing, synthetic biology, and genetic editing to help advance science and improve lives. Previously, he was Deputy Director General of Civic Innovation at the Coordination of National Digital Strategy of Mexico, where he led strategies and projects that promote citizen participation and innovation in the country through the use of technology. In particular, he was part of the team that developed the strategy, standards, and tools for Mexico's open data policy so that public information could be shared between agencies and to citizens in readable and accessible formats. From 2009 to 2012 Jorge was the founder and chief technology officer of CitiVox, a platform that allowed government officials and development agencies to receive and analyze citizen reports and convert them into actionable information. Today, Jorge is focusing on the development of tools that use technology to improve the financial situation of people in Latin America. This is a collaborative event between the Council on Latin American & Iberian Studies and the European Studies Council.
