L. Felice Gorordo is a serial entrepreneur, advisor and organizer. Currently, Felice is CEO of eMerge Americas, a platform which fosters innovation and entrepreneurship across South Florida and Latin America, and organizes the largest annual tech event connecting the Americas. In 2019, he led the organizing of eMerge’s sixth annual conference, which attracted more than 16,000 attendees and 400 participating companies from over 40 countries.

Felice also co-founded and leads Roots of Hope, a non-profit focused on youth empowerment in Cuba through technology and entrepreneurship. He worked on the re-establishment of U.S.-Cuba diplomatic ties, and served as an advisor to Grammy-winner Juanes to help organize the historic Peace without Borders concert in Cuba, which resulted in 1.2 million in attendance.

Previously, Felice was President & CEO of Clearpath, (acquired by L1BRE), a venture-backed tech company focused on revolutionizing the confusing, costly and paper-based immigration filing process – just as TurboTax transformed tax filing. At Clearpath, Felice leveraged patented-technology to empower immigrants and democratize the immigration process by making it easier, more affordable and secure for individuals to file their own applications.

Felice also served as advisor to the Biden Cancer Initiative, helping organize and mobilize support from stakeholders in the cancer space - including industry leaders, patients, caregivers, advocates, community organizers and research professionals. In 2018, Felice led the organizing of more than 450 community summits across the U.S. to focus national attention on creating actionable solutions in the fight against cancer.

Prior to that, Felice was appointed by President Obama as one of fifteen 2011-2012 White House Fellows and served in the White House Office of Public Engagement & Intergovernmental Affairs.

In President Bush's Administration, he served in various positions at the U.S. Departments of Commerce, State, and Homeland Security.

PODER Magazine has named Felice one of the 100 Poderosos Most Influential Hispanics in the U.S., and he has been featured on CNN’s Young People Who Rock. He also served as a Term Member of the Council on Foreign Relations and as Senior Fellow at the Georgetown University Beeck Center for Social Impact & Innovation. Felice is a graduate of Georgetown University and currently resides in Miami, FL, with his wife, daughter, and son.
