Andrés Aquino

“I won’t just sit on the sidelines as the world grows beyond the information age – I will shape and support the innovators of our world to do their thing.”

Andrés Aquino was an established entrepreneur with two startups already under his belt when he joined The Working Group as Partner in 2008. The most recent, ClickGreener, he sold to Green Rewards / Air Miles, paving the way for his entry to TWG where he oversees studio operations and product strategy.

His approach is grounded in the belief that software is the most powerful way to deliver business success. With this in mind, he supports clients to understand and identify their business goals first before crafting powerful technology solutions that meet and exceed those goals. A natural teacher and motivator, he is constantly seeking new ways to help people work better, whether it is those on his team or as a mentor within the Toronto tech community.

A founding organizer of events such as Lean Coffee Toronto and #nerdlearn, Andrés also drives TWG’s community engagements with groups including TEDxToronto, of which TWG is a supporting partner, and Childhood Cancer Canada. In addition to investing in a range of startups with TWG, including Shopify-acquired Rocketr, Andres is also a founding partner at PostageApp and 1THING, the app which allows you to anonymously share things which you are grateful for.
