Alfredo jungle scholar winner

Alfredo – Scholarship Awardee – Fall 2021

Alfredo is a serial entrepreneur, self-taught web developer, and YouTuber with a passion for addressing real-world problems with software. He is currently studying computer science at California State University, Long Beach. 

We were intrigued by Alfredo’s pitch for a reselling platform for unwanted gift cards, which would meet existing demand with the convenience of centralized supply and mobile payment. We were also super impressed that he built his own smartphone flipping business. Alfredo clearly has a bright future in tech, and we’re happy to support it!

Adolfo – Scholarship Awardee – Fall 2020

Adolfo is pursuing a degree in computer science at the University of Texas at Tyler, and hopes to one day become a software engineer for NASA or Tesla. When he’s not studying, he loves to cook, run cross country, and explore music production.

Adolfo had the idea to develop an app called Mom and Dad, a database of helpful advice to improve health outcomes for people who struggle to bond with those close to them, including children who live in single-parent households. We think that’s a timely and innovative solution!
