With the help of the aptly named BOSS management system he created, Marco is said to be able to pin point business solutions and rescue a business faster than any one else. Over the years he has made a name for himself as the “turnaround specialist who never fails.” Every year Marco is single-handedly responsible for pumping millions of dollars of value into his clients’ businesses in the form of increased sales & profits, job creation and business valuation. Marco Robert is a true citizen of the world. For the first five years after college, he worked in Canada and in the Bahamas to gain experience and muster the confidence to start his first business. From there he moved to Guatemala in Central America where he opened two restaurants. Later, after selling his restaurants, Marco started a private equity investment company, and soon moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, enjoying a beach lifestyle while running his business. Starting in 2001, he began visiting California’s Silicon Valley on a regular basis. The charms, climate and entrepreneurial spirit of Northern California soon seduced him. So, in 2004 with a partner, he started a management consulting firm and began helping local Californian businesses grow and thrive. As soon as the word got out about the kind of successes his clients were having, Marco got head-hunted to collaborate on larger consulting projects with a national consulting firm. Over the years he has collaborated with several such large firms on business projects all over the world. In 2016, with a partner, he formed his latest business; a Silicon Valley boutique venture capitalist firm.
