My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.

Authenteq is the future of identity verification and digital authentication. We believe it should be fast, fully automated, and simple without compromising on data security. Authenteq started life as an identity app intended to verify online personas and validate website reviews. When the founder of Authenteq, Kari Thor, saw the app’s potential to become an easy-to-use, fast and secure ID recognition service, putting the control of identity firmly back in the hands of the users. Two years later, having set up a team in Berlin and secured investors, the first version of Authenteq was launched. Initially designed to be a standalone app, our team soon realised that to create a truly simple ID verification process, we needed to pivot the concept and allow the service to be integrated within partner platforms. Adapting our product to an integrated service allows us to create a seamless and smooth experience for the end-user. Our aim – to make Authenteq the most accurate and least memorable part of the customer journey.

My name is Luis Guillermo Castro Martin. I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is no ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature. I am the author of “Fragments of Mind” on Substack. A space for thinking outside the box, while discussing philosophical matters.

Programs on CD-ROM were the big hit in 1995. Unfortunately also for thieves who picked the expensive CDs from the presentation computers at the then popular CeBit IT trade show. It was this situation, when our today's managing director came up with the idea, that started it all: "Why not copy the CD-ROM to the hard disk and make Windows believe that this copy were a CD drive." Virtual CD, the CD drive emulator, was born. The program created a new genre and became a bestseller. But this was just the start: "If we can virtualize CD-ROMs, why not virtualize the graphics card, too?!". Since the market did not offer anything suitable for us, we decided to make a text snippet program on our own, which later evolved into the typing productivity solution "PhraseExpress", now used by well-known companies around the globe. PhraseExpress is a text expander software, that manages frequently used text templates for insertion into any program. The template manager organizes text templates in multiple languages or customizable categories. Phrases can be triggered from the snippet menu, by hotkey or with autotext shortcuts. The autotext software is available for Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac and iPhone/iPad. Boilerplate templates are customizable with user input before insertion and be shared in the cloud or in the local network by a Microsoft SQL or PhraseExpress Server.

We designed MyFocusSpace as the go-to-place for any remote worker. A place where you know you can stay accountable and push things forward. Now that the world is familiar with video communications, the way businesses and individuals communicate and connect will be forever changed. Long story short we, the 3 founders of MyFocusSpace - Ionut Mistreanu, Viorica Vanica and Vlad Tarniceru - have one big thing in common: building solutions that solve real problems. It's only that we have different approaches to be productive: Ionut, for instance, is passionate about finding ways to be more effective in his daily life. On the other hand, Vlad is the type of person who performs in random spikes of creativity. And Vio, mixes both worlds together to accomplish her best. Even so, we figured out that no matter the approach, all of us would benefit from a platform which would improve self-accountability while working from home most of the time. That's when we started developing MyFocusSpace.

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio.
