Social Capitalist

Felipe brings invaluable traits and experiences that will amass a captive audience - particularly representation, advocacy, and ability to access and share information. Inspired by Thiago Nigro (Primo Rico), Felipe translates his passion for humanitarianism and money making mindset into key differentiators as a public figure.

Felipe will be the first to represent social capitalism to those who benefit the most from its practice: the socioeconomically vulnerable and disadvantaged. Speaking from his lived experiences, Felipe will incite trust, admiration, and loyal following from those who are motivated to transform their lives and their world through innovation and prosocial entrepreneurship and investment.


International Entrepreneur

Leveraging his years of self-directed learning and amassed resources, Felipe will create easy-to-understand content centered around social entrepreneurship and investment opportunities, strategies, benefits, drawbacks, etc. He will be referenced as the point person when it comes to translating difficult investment/entrepreneurial concepts into understandable, actionable insights to his audience.


Startup Founder

As a startup founder, Felipe will provide an inside look into life as a tech startup founder in the USA, along with key takeaways, tips, resources, ideas, and guidance that’s invaluable to emerging and underep’d founders! Felipe will also create content focusing on breaking long-standing myths that create barriers to international entrepreneurship in the USA.

VIRGINIA LEMOS

PsyD. Virginia Lemos, Co-Founder & COO

Public Figure: DocLemos
Social Media: @DocLemos
Mission: Transforming technology through psychology
Contact: virginia@ioagora.com

Psychologist

As a clinical psychologist, Virginia will leverage her degree, systems expertise, and clinical training to validate her credentials as an “Emerging Expert in Media Psychology” through experiential learning.

Why do this? Well, the global pandemic accelerated the relevance and demand for applied psychology skill sets, expertise, and leaders to represent the field in popular reference - and none exists. What does this mean?

There is an eager audience awaiting engaging content created by a specialist in media psychology that is relatable and that the broader digital audience can identify with, and Virginia stands competently uncontested as she embraces this key leadership role.


Social Entrepreneur

Another highly sought but lacking in availability is a public figure representing female entrepreneurs seeking opportunities and fulfillment beyond “side hustles” for supplemental income. Rooted in her expertise as a social scientist, Virginia will create curated content for a social justice framework that inspires and empowers young female entrepreneurs everywhere to make a difference and a living by contributing critically to society through innovation experimentation.


Startup Founder

The technology startup space severely lacks female founder representation, resources, advocacy, and community. On the premise of stakeholder capitalism, community engagement, and prosocial organizational responsibility, Virginia will shake up the startup community with innovative and divergent perspectives that will serve as a supportive and resourceful call to action for the startup ecosystem.
