About me
João Montenegro is a designer and product person. Native to high-tech and industrial design, João’s motto is to better the world by humanizing technology. He has designed, developed, and launched new hardware and digital products with startups since he was studying in university, where he later was invited to teach Project in Design. His journey into the startup ecosystem has moved him through company builders and VCs, to building his own product design studio, and eventually joining Code For All to help kickstart ubbu. When he is not designing 3d printers, vehicles, and digital products & services, João spends his time doing amateur astronomy in inhospitable places, talking about the future with friends, and reading Nat Geo magazine.
