Facundo Cajén

Global Shaper, Buenos Aires Hub

Facundo Cajén currently runs Proponas, an online petition platform with almost 50k registered users. This project has led him to become part of the next generation of YLAI Fellows for their 2022 program. He also serves as a political advisor for Maricel Etchecoin, a congresswoman who is the former president of the Argentinian political party called Coalición Cívica-ARI. Facundo serves as an advisor at the Budget and Taxation Commission and the Public Works Commission but often finds himself fighting to push forward new bills related to transparency, corruption, and gender equality. Investigating corrupt companies is also part of his job, and he claims to love it! Yet, he can not be labeled just like that. Before joining the political spectrum, he ran different tech start-ups. One of them was an online food delivery system that turned out to be a major failure (yes, you read that right). The other was an online polling system that he crafted to fight against his country's major political polling companies. This project was a great success, and it set him up to join the political arena. Besides his Bachelor's degree in International Relations, he is now finishing his master's thesis for the Masters's program in Cyberdefense and Cybersecurity at the University of Buenos Aires. Both his bachelor's and master's theses revolve around cryptocurrencies regulation.
