"Exobase was an experience like no other. The approach to learning, acquiring new skills and executing is quite different. Andy Ellwood and supporting speakers were top shelf. I went in as an independent, curious student and left as a collaborative member of a community. I have had some small wins as an Entrepreneur but have realized to make a real impact you need two things: community and a very unconventional approach to solving problems--this was a great first step on that path."
-Byron Blair

Skinner Layne

Skinner has founded both successful and failed start-ups, and has raised more than $10 million in early-stage financing in addition to acting as a private equity advisor to multiple energy projects in excess of $100 million and has established formal relationships with global energy funds.

He grew up in a small town in Arkansas and has previously been an Enterprise Web 2.0 consultant to NASDAQ companies and was, at the age of 23, the youngest person to sit on the board of directors of a Sarbanes Oxley-compliant publicly traded company in the United States. Skinner is a former speechwriter and senior strategist to U.S. Senator John Boozman. Skinner has been living and doing business in Latin America since he moved to Chile before the 2008 financial crisis.

Antonio Manno

Antonio founded one of the first Internet Service Providers in Italy in 1994. In 1999, he founded the first online auction company in Italy, but then met the fate of many other dotcom bubble era companies. Antonio spent 4 years in Estonia working in an investment consultancy company studying and opening the Baltic market for the Italian SME enterprises.

He was a mechanical engineer and was hired out of University to a position of production manager of the Snia Bpd, the then chemical conglomerate company of the FIAT Group, and served as chief production manager of Fapack Spa. Antonio has been living and working in Chile since 2010.

Andy Ellwood

Andy was born with the gift of gab and raised with an overdeveloped self esteem. While making a name for himself with his caffeine fueled hustle, he's seen more than his fair share of ups and downs on the journey of the entrepreneur.

From selling life insurance to selling private jets for Warren Buffett early in his career, Andy knows first hand what life on the front lines of sales looks like. He leveraged those lessons into his roles leading business development and partnerships for Gowalla through to their acquisition by Facebook 2011 and for Waze through to their acquisition by Google in 2013.

There are few things Andy enjoys more than meeting others who are as passionate about finding and living out their true calling. Whether speaking from a big stage or brainstorming on the back of a napkin with an aspiring entrepreneur, he believes that great things in life happen when you're playing for something bigger than yourself.

Andy lives in New York City with his wife, Annie Fitzsimmons, and their rescue dog, Rocco.

Carlos Miceli

Carlos is a business strategist, career hacker and communicator born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, who sees himself as a lifelong learner with a strong entrepreneurial spirit in everything he does. He has launched business or worked from Argentina, Chile, Australia, China and the US.

He's Co-Founder of Exosphere and Founder of JumpLab, a private spanish-speaking online group where ambitious professionals can update their professional paradigms, and connect with the relevant information and people that they need to boost their careers.

Previously, he worked as Innovation Advisor in the Buenos Aires Government, helped market two best-selling books, sold his first internet company, and worked as a Top Clients Sales Executive in Telecom Argentina, where he beat his sales objectives with clients such as Visa, AMEX and ADT.
