Inspired in Patagonia and always being connected to nature, Thomas has been an entrepreneur since he was 18 years old. Convinced in proving through example that it is possible to build an alternative business logic; one in harmony with our natural environment, he has founded and co-founded different projects that promote a sustainable development: he founded the first sustainability website in Chile: Claneco.com, he co-founded the biggest native reforestation in Chile’s history: Reforestemos Patagonia and founded the sustainable eyewear brand, Karün.
Thomas has been invited to join the Global shaper community for the WorldEconomic Forum and has also been recognized by different organizations for his leadership role in the transition towards a new economic paradigm:
- “100 young leaders of Chile”, El Mercurio newspaper 2011
- “Relevant character of 2014”, La Tercera newspaper
- “Extraordinary young people of LatinAmerica 2016”, GQ Latinamerica
- Among others…
His entrepreneurships have gotten national and international recognition and Karün sunglasses have been worn by important world leaders as a symbol of change and the different point of view we must have on our society. He is currently focused in Karün, where he spends his time travelling through Sweden, Italy and Chile always looking for time to spend in nature.
