Diego is an Entrepreneur, angel investor, SaaS expert and the CEO of Rock Content. After studying advertising he met Victor - his co-founder. They were both avid blog readers which led them to start a blog about trends, technology and the Internet. Not long after that Diego Created EverWrite, which was an SEO platform that was reverse-engineered by Google to give brands intelligence when creating content. To demonstrate that the SEO hypotheses worked, they created a blog and Diego spent his days producing content on the most diverse topics. Diego always wanted to undertake and build an impactful company in Brazil.
