ORT's Educational Impact: Mateo Nicolás Salvatto

Mateo was a Systems student at the ORT Institute in Argentina. After eight years of studying on-site at ORT’s Almagro campus, Mateo is now ORT Argentina’s Head of Innovation.


“ORT has changed my life in many ways and has provided me with everything I need… ORT teachers prepare you for the jobs of the future, by helping develop key skills such as critical thinking, innovation, and complex problem-solving. The education was oriented to our interests, not the other way around. We had the ability to learn whatever we wanted as long as it was enriching for our future careers.”


Mateo is also the CEO and co-founder of Asteroid Technologies, a company with a goal to develop projects that help introduce the world to the fourth industrial revolution.
