Andre Wongtschowski is head of operations at World-Transforming Technologies (WTT), a Brazil-based non-profit organization dedicated to connecting innovators and technology developers with opportunities for social, environmental and economic impact. Through his work at WTT, Wongtschowski accelerates the development of disruptive innovations aimed at solving large-scale social and environmental challenges (particularly in energy, water, recycling and agriculture), and creates room for experimenting with technological, social and business-model innovations in real-world contexts. On fellowship Wongtschowski wants to create, for the first time in Brazil, an institutional program designed to direct scientists’ and researchers’ efforts towards the discovery and development of a new generation of innovations to solve some of the country’s most critical social and environmental challenges. He plans to meet with impact investors and leaders of university offices of technology development and licensing.
