  • Santa Clara University “The main traits of a Serial Entrepreneur” with Jorge Fernandes, CEO of Mobibucks
Jorge Fernandes is a renowned serial entrepreneur counting several successes in his repertoire.
PPL Crowdfunding Portugal is only too happy to have Jorge as part of its Advisory Board Member and so to benefit from the first hand advice of this reference in the field.

Jorge inspired the team with his account of Silicon Valley misadventures and challenges of making it big.
In particular, he shared some of the challenges of launching something relevant in the ever so competitive mobile payments sector.
His strategy, repeated over 16 times: find the unique technological advance that resolves the tremendous challenge to society and… patent it!


Jorge is relentless in his pursuit of innovative excellence and although his legacy shows incredibly prosperous activity, he is serene in his approach and clear in his strategy. One ingredient serves as a differentiating factor; he believes in and is pragmatic in pursuing his dreams.
