Today, Haroldo Jacobovicz is the Founder and Chairman of Horizons Telecom, which, since its inception in 2010, has grown into one of Brazil’s top telecommunications suppliers. Although Haroldo Jacobovicz is now regarded as one of the most influential people in the industry, his success didn’t come without a number of setbacks and doubts. His initial endeavor, the launching of a company called Microsystem, proved to ultimately be unsuccessful, folding in just under a year. Despite the failure of this company, the idea behind it, was not, and as an early adopter of information technology, he was able to grow his business into the powerhouse that it is today.
Before delving into the world of information technology, Haroldo Jacobovicz sought to follow the path of his parents, both of which led to successful careers as civil engineers. While his respect and admiration for his parents never waned, his need to create his own entrepreneurial endeavor continued to grow, motivating him over the course of his career. Eventually, Haroldo Jacobovicz would join Exxon Mobil, and later Itaipu Binational, both of which played pivotal roles in his development as one of Brazil’s foremost information technology experts. By the time he decided to part ways with Itaipu Binational, the need and respect for information technology had grown substantially, and he felt that it was time to give entrepreneurship another go.
In 2020, with Horizons Telecom flourishing, he sought to continue the expansion of his company, launching Horizons Datacenter. This was a result of the increasing popularity of cloud technology, and with the acquisition of Onda, his vision was made possible. Through e-Governe, Horizons Telecom, and Horizons Datacenter, Haroldo Jacobovicz is involved with a number of public sectors throughout Brazil, including tax, education, and health.
