Mariano, known to his friends as Nano, hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina. As an entrepreneur Nano is highly family-oriented and committed to his community and its history. After completing his B.A. Nano focused on business development, promoting interactive marketing technologies in Latin America, the U.S., and Spain. His involvement with the Jewish community increased following the terrorist attack on AMIA, when he began to volunteer at the Department of Community Assistance (DAIA), and where he took on leadership roles for nearly 12 years. Nano's innovative Holocaust remembrance project won the first prize in a competition called “The Shoah and its Heritage,” and led him to participate in the March of the Living and the Shoah’s Generation project, in which context he was the apprentice student of Jack Fuchs z''l, a Holocaust survivor. After that experience he started to develop and co-lead Zikaron BaSalon for Spanish speakers in Latam and Spain. In 2015, inspired by his experience at the ROI Summit, he started to develop Tikkun Olam Makers in Buenos Aires. He co-led the first Makeathon for people with disabilities with a team of over 150 volunteers. Nano is also a sports enthusiast, and represented the Hacoaj Club for over 17 years, playing in national and international competitions. Nano was co-founder of AppRight.org and is a member of the Latin American Jewish Congress and ASEA, the Argentinian Entrepreneurship Association. In 2016 he was awarded a distinguished prize from the Buenos Aires City government in honor of his work and social commitment.
