Nacho loves connecting the dots between problem and solution with technology. He's excited to explore how technology can be used to connect art-creators and art-lovers and embraces the chaos involved in these new possibilities. 

Born and raised in Argentina, Nacho has a degree in Software Engineering from the University of Buenos Aires. He has extensive experience with technology startups developing mobile and web-based apps for Argentine and American companies. In 2012, he made the move to the United States and has since lead the IDB's innovation hub, and has participated in numerous startup weekends, winning the 2016 DC Start Up Weekend with his team. 

Nacho Cerrato is part of the technology team at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Washington, D.C. His role is to leverage technology in development projects for Latin America and the Caribbean by creating prototypes, failing fast, and generating evidence to bring these ideas to scale. 

Nacho loves puzzles and learning new things. So far he has tried martial arts, music instruments (saxophone, ukulele), rock climbing, snowboarding, surfing, magic, and drawing. He possess the unique ability to always close his eyes in pictures.
