Haroldo Jacobovicz, raised by civil engineers, grew up interested in the field. However, the Brazilian has continued to pave his path as an entrepreneur and investor. Despite growing up with ambitions in engineering, Haroldo became interested in Information Tech. He believes IT is going to transform the world.
His beliefs have caused many telecom and communication companies to appoint him as their leader. Jacobovicz also heads his own telecom service companies, including Horizons Telecom and e-Governe. Fortunately, life seemed to have prepared Haroldo for his life as an entrepreneur. He had honed his leadership skills early on by leading his sibling at home.
Haroldo was a value-driven person enabling him to achieve outstanding academic results. His dedication paid off, and he finally got to attend Parana’s Federal University, where he studied civil engineering in 1979. However, his interest in technology stuck with him, and soon, Haroldo began his entrepreneurial life while still in college. Together with three friends, Haroldo started Microsystem, a software developing company.
They aimed to introduce automated systems to businesses globally. The methods would help simplify processes such as inventory and business management, but their plan failed. Lacking clients led to the closure of the company. Despite failing at his first shot at entrepreneurship, Haroldo Jacobovicz took the experience as a lesson through which he gained crucial skills.
