Adriano Marques is Co-founder and CTO at Startup Foundry. Adriano was the engineering team lead at crowdSPRING and is the founder of the Umit Project Open Source Organization where he has, for 6 years, mentored dozens of engineers around the world through the Google Summer of Code program.

A dedicated husband and daddy to two great boys (and a little girl arriving soon!), Adriano still finds time to cook, watch movies, send stuff to the edge of space, work as a volunteer and read (or listen to) books while he’s not sleeping or working.

Adriano graduated from the State University of Goias, in Brazil, where he earned a Bachelor degree, while traveling about 55,900 miles (more than earth’s equatorial circumference). In his quest to travel more than Gerard Moss (the first South American to fly around the world), Adriano graduated, married, and traveled with his wife to live in Brussels and work for Belgacom, where he learned a bit of French and to love that country.
