MATÍAS GUTÍERREZ MOYANO
Matías is a social entrepreneur with two motivations: 1) to support the development of NGO's in Argentina, and 2) to encourage people to play sports and protect the environment.
1) Matías believes that both grassroots and NGOs are fundamental actors for the development of communities. With that vision in mind, he obtained a Masters in Management of Non-Profit Organizations (San Andrés and Di Tella Universities, 2001) and for more than 20 years he has been collaborating and supporting the work of non profit organizations in Argentina. He was the creator and director of the Caritas Emergency Department (1998-2004) and Coordinator of the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives in Argentina (Canadian Embassy, 2002-2010).
2) In February 2018, Matías summoned outstanding athletes to Mt. Aconcagua (6.962m.)to bring the flag of the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games to the mountain's top. The “Summit Aconcagua” project successfully achieved its objectives of promoting sport, and raising funds to help the Bacigaluppo foundation to improve their work with children with intellectual disabilities.
