About Ramon

I am a classically trained Marketer and the Founder of Collaborate.Biz, a first-of-its-kind platform that acts as a match maker for businesses that are looking for strategic partners. I like to describe it as "LinkedIn meets Match.com," where strategically compatible businesses unite to share referrals, pool resources, and collaborate on large projects.

Collaborate.Biz is among an exclusive group of companies invited to join the first-ever Hispanic Tech Incubator at 1871, a highly selective program co-sponsored by 1871 and the Illinois Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

I am looking for a Full-Stack Technology Whiz who can help me further craft this vision and bring it to life, as well as a Business Development Pro who can unlock untapped opportunities and accelerate growth.
