Tony Plasencia

I’m from East Oakland, California. During my time at University, I joined Uber (pre-IPO) and was exposed to the power of emerging technologies while working on different projects such as UberKiosk, UberOffline, and UberMaps. My curiosity paired with a desire for changeset me on a journey in the 'Start-Up Ecosystem.' Since Uber, I’ve worked at 2 hyper-growth companies, helped get 2 start-ups to get their wheels rolling, and co-founded two companies w/ awesome peeps :-) (hellocertified.com, diffusion.me)
My curiosity for knowledge and optimism allow me to discover the problems, needs, and wishes of peeps and then create a plan. Boom! Somehow you get yourself a salesperson.
I'm a Techie but Philosopher by passion; I am interested in AI/ML/Crypto and its intersectionality between the bio-political State and its uses in Policy. My goal is to be a leading Politician who connects Big Tech and Policy to improve processes to build better communities and opportunities.
