Antonio Altamirano

Antonio is an entrepreneur living in Silicon Valley, California. He is the founder of Interesante.com a popular website serving Latinos and Latinas across the globe. Interesante helps people discover and share the most interesting things in the world.

Prior to Interesante, Antonio started Tangelo, a software development company and startup incubator. Tangelo develops software for large companies and startups. Since its inception, Tangelo has incubated a few MED-TECH and AD-TECH startups that have secured considerable VC and angel funding. Tangelo is currently incubating startups in the wearable tech space as well.

Before Tangelo, Antonio worked at Accenture where he started the search and social media team, making Accenture one the first big brands to have a strong social media presence. Within the first year, the search and social media initiatives became the top marketing programs at Accenture, beating even Tiger Woods, when Tiger Woods was Tiger Woods. (No hard feelings, Tiger.)

Antonio started his career at Sun Microsystems and also was part of SearchRev, a startup that was acquired by AKQA.

Before becoming a technology entrepreneur, Antonio practiced whitewater rafting professionally. Antonio continues to advise one of the top adventure travel companies in Ecuador, Barefoot Expeditions.
