Government Relations | Greater New York City Area, US
Ricardo is the founder & CEO of Donortap, the data intelligence & call management app for fundraising. We have built a proprietary DonorCloud where we develop a smart profile for every donor in the US. Our clients are able to tap into our DonorCloud and, leveraging big data analytics and artificial intelligence, we match them with donors with the highest probability of contributing to their campaigns. Our mobile app connects the organization´s fundraising team (staffers, board members and volunteers) with prospective donors that share similar backgrounds or points of commonality to optimize the probability of giving during fundraising outreach. Without the need for spreadsheets, CRM, training and/or phone-banks, we have made fundraising both easy and fun.
Ricardo is a 2012 ERANYC fellow, a top tech US accelerator program, and is a 2013 Fellow of the NYU Stern Berkley Center for Innovation. Currently Ricardo leads the first national Latino angel investor group in the US as a member of the New America Alliance (NAA), a national organization comprised of Latino founders of alternative investment firms (PE, hedge funds etc.) and industry leaders. Ricardo was a member of the recent delegation of the Department of State and the Aspen Institute exploring the investment and entrepreneurial ecosystem in Latin America.
Prior to Donortap, Ricardo was an Associate at the NYC Mayor’s Office developing the 2015 technology blueprint for New York City. He also served as campaign CTO to mayor Angel Taveras; the first Latino mayor of the City of Providence, RI.
