About Leo Ramirez

Leo is a social entrepreneur with diverse experience launching and managing non-profits, leading multi-disciplinary teams and building solid relationships with civic and corporate leaders.

His 22-year career has spanned executive management, business development, consulting, nonprofit management, technical support and engineering positions with Southwest Key Programs, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Coremetrics, Trilogy and Apple.

Leo co-founded his first non-profit, EDCO Ventures, in 2005 to address job creation in economically underprivileged regions through high-growth, entrepreneurial ventures. He then co-founded MiniDonations, whose mission was to make social impact, through micro-donations, a part of everyday life.

Since then Leo has co-founded many ventures and has served as board advisor for many organizations. With his latest venture Encast, Leo's goal is to broaden the distribution and increase the amount of charitable dollars given around the world.
