Fabio Segura has been awarded “outstanding young persons of the world” by TOYP (Japan, 2008).

His goal is to begin with early childhood development to ensure the success of young kids using technology and impact investment. Fabio runs the powerful Jacobs Foundation, backed by a family and founder with the same name.
