Haroldo Jacobovicz, the Creator of Horizons Telecom
Driven by his enthusiasm for information technology, Haroldo Jacobovicz is a civil engineer and entrepreneur. To provide the best strategic resources, technical proficiency, and human talent to tackle information technology problems efficiently with current solutions, he formed Horizons Telecom, e-Governe Group, and Horizons Datacenter. These companies have played an indispensable part in transforming markets in Brazil markedly.
Horizons Telecom has developed amazingly since it was founded in 2010 with a 100% fiber network and top-notch equipment that offers redundancy across multiple points. This brings about its recognition as one of the leading telecommunications service providers in Brazil, which encourages the origination of Horizons Datacenter in 2020, intent on advancing its mission, such as bringing cloud capabilities and connectivity that organizations yearn for.
As the seventh female civil engineer in her state, Sarita Jacobovicz and her husband inspired their son Haroldo with their construction of physical structures. Initially, Haroldo Jacobovicz followed his parents’ paths and went to the Federal University of Paraná to pursue a degree in civil engineering for four and a half years. However, he found himself more fascinated by upcoming information technology and looked at his parents as spiritual guides instead, motivating him to make something worthwhile for the benefit of all.
Haroldo Jacobovicz was inquisitive about the modernizing inventions which form the world, and he started to explore everything he could discover about the potential of technology in journals and magazines. He discerned that although luck had a big part in business, hard work and cultivated skill were indispensable for building something lasting. Thus, he quickly took action by setting up Microsystem with three friends who had extensive knowledge of information technology before they all graduated.
Then again, their product – an answer designed to help firms digitalize their inventory and capital control- would be extensively employed today. Still, it was not recognized then as people were not receptive yet to automation’s future. Microsystem closed after a year but did not discourage Haroldo’s perspective. He became even more assured that while most may not accept the future of technology back then, one day, it will move the whole world.
