“Marco Gomes is a tech visionary”, TechCrunch / Awarded as The Best Marketing Technologies Professional of the World by the World Technology Network

Before being hired as a Deployment Strategist in Palantir Technologies I was the founder of boo-box (sold in 2015), listed by FastCompany as one of the world’s top 5 most innovative advertising companies; co-founder of Mova Mais, the physical exercises reward program for the Brazilian market; and Consigliere of Jovem Nerd, award-winning geek-entertainment content producers.

“Palantir Technologies will not help you share, message, pin, post or chat. It does not exist to make you more social or connected, or even to help advertisers get to you. Its technology is deeply geeky, its work secretive. Nonetheless, it’s one of the most valuable private tech companies in Silicon Valley.” – New York Times, May 2014.

boo-box was one of the world’s most innovative companies according to Fast Company and Forbes; with more than 700,000 websites, its advertising network reached 67 million people in Brazil every month with ads from clients like Google, Unilever, Ford and Microsoft; we had investments from Monashees Capital and Intel Capital. The company was sold in October 2015 to FTPI Digital, a media sales company.

I am the main story on “Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky”, Sarah Lacy’s (TechCrunch, Pando) new book about high-growth entrepreneurs. I did Strategic Marketing Management (ExEd) at Stanford University. I also gave a speech about creative economy and freedom on the Internet at the United Nations HQ in NY, USA.

Married, cyclist, nerd and geek, I’m a fan of zombies, sci-fi, robots and Brazilian hip-hop culture.
