Early days

Ariel Camus was born in Mendoza, Argentina, but left the country when an economic crisis occurred in 2001. For this reason, Camus's family decided to move to Spain, where he lived in the Canary Islands for four years, until he moved to Madrid to study telecommunications engineering.

In his last university years, Ariel started his first startup: TouristEye, an online platform that allowed users to evaluate, review, and plans the destinations and activities of their trip. The organization gained value thanks to the millions of downloads and constant interaction with the client until Ariel decided to sell it to Lonely Planet, an Australian company focused on travel books.

Career

In his last university years, Ariel started his first startup: TouristEye, an online platform that allowed users to evaluate, review, and plans the destinations and activities of their trip. The organization gained value thanks to the millions of downloads and constant interaction with the client until Ariel decided to sell it to Lonely Planet, an Australian company focused on travel books.

After selling her first startup, Ariel started teaching at a school in Burundi. Ariel was in contact with Lonely Planet's Senior Product Manager, who discussed the difficulties they had in finding talent for the company. For Ariel, it was an irony to realize that he had met many talented people in Burundi, leading him to question the offer and the labor demand. While there are millions of people who could fill the roles needed by companies, few places offer such opportunities.

This reflection was the beginning of the next undertaking by Ariel Camus. His goal was to connect people from all over the world to practice peer programming for many hours a day remotely. In this way, he founded Microverse in 2018. This startup is a school that trains people around the world to exploit their power and start an international career.

Other facts

Microverse currently connects students from more than 80 countries around the world through a program that takes six to eight months to train software developers. Students only pay once they get their first well-paying job. Currently, the platform entered Y-Combinator last summer.
