INNOVATIVE IDEAS TO CHANGE THE WORLD

'As professionals, we are what we repeatedly do, but guided by what we aspire to'. This motto always defined Hugo's attitude - 'the more you know, the more you dare'.

As he never realised 100% what he truly desired - besides eternal youth - continuous learning has always been his mantra. From sailing coach to co-founder of the oldest university debate society in Portugal, Hugo even had the chance to lead a 600-member think tank - where he did consultancy for companies such as EADS, EDF, Total, Valeo, Yunus Center and Renault. He was also in PwC as assistant associate and afterwards he joined Li & Fung as a global manager - which led him through the world for five years working with top management on strategy, marketing, operations, innovation and forefront initiatives.

Meanwhile, he co-founded TwentyFive - a cognitive improvement startup - and he is currently the lead analyst at the London Block Exchange - where he writes a newsletter analysing the cryptoasset market for more than 3,000 active daily readers during the night, and an innovation consultant during the day.

Kind and positive, Hugo is a curious, detail-oriented person. To better understand the other, and himself, he trains all types of communication, except one - because he can't sing, he says. In fact, the only thing he envy on others is the ability to create music.

Hugo writes every day and believes that innovative ideas can change the business world - for the better.
