More about Rene Cuartero

COO @ AHG Lab | Venture Building & Empowering Entrepreneurs | Finance & Econometrics Lecturer @ DLSU | Nyenrode MSc | PhD Economics (cand)

Upbeat, analytical, and adaptive individual with an exceptional level of energy to deliver impact while building strong and meaningful connections – equipped with cumulatively 10+ years of experience across Asia, Europe, and the US. Some highlights:
• Currently a COO handling strategy, operations, finance, and human resources for one of the Philippines' largest venture builders / venture studios with a portfolio of 10 ventures (and growing)
• Most proud to have been part of the founding team that scaled a non-profit startup in Amsterdam with national policies and programs implemented in 70+ countries, along with being able to innovatively (social-)franchise projects and operations to 150+ countries that empowered young people through financial inclusion and entrepreneurship
• Worked in fast-paced multinationals (ex-P&G, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley Capital Int'l), high performing non-profits (Red Cross and CYFI), and in a globally-ranked research university (DLSU)
• Teaching in the weekends to MBA, masters, and bachelors students the following courses: (financial) econometrics, international finance and business, financial development and sustainability, and foundational corporate finance/financial management
• Lived, worked, studied, and traveled to a total of 31 countries (so far)

Remembered by colleagues and connections as someone with infectious motivation to make things happen, a quick learner that thrives even in ambiguity, and a team player with a can-do mentality in achieving professional pursuits and personal passions

Outside work, I run (a lot), I aim to train for an Olympic Triathlon, I (used to) organize electronic music events, and I excessively obsess over house plants.
