It’s funny: I don’t really see the limits. Challenges to me are like climbing a mountain, it’s one step in front of the other. As a leader, it is my job to forge the path and track the process (and my progress) so others can follow—I lead by example, always.
— Marcos Bonafede

Having moved to the States from Argentina at the tender age of 12, Marcos quickly discovered his innate ability to network and connect with his new American peers—despite an obvious language barrier and cultural divide. Marcos was also blessed with being raised by two strong entrepreneurial, immigrant parents which allowed him to witness first hand the life that was possible to attain and what could be accomplished with a little bit of hard work, perseverance, and willingness to learn from one’s own mistakes; he attributes his relentless personal drive, tenacious outlook and entrepreneurial spirit to his upbringing, his childhood, and his parents.

Marcos’s Blue Sky Goal:

To eventually become an entrepreneur in the healthcare space (or an adjacent industry) and to apply what I've learned from my experience at HealthRise and from my newly gained partners at Trinity Health to help evolve the healthcare industry as a whole while also bettering our community—and beyond!
