Back in the late 90's I launched the Latino based website InLaCasa.com (no longer exists). I had this big dream of the site going IPO and getting that big payoff just like Picosito.com and Latino.com.
Long story short it didn’t happen, I didn’t give up and eventually launched Mr. Latino.
The guy your about to meet is a true “Mover & Shaker”, a longtime friend and a big reason I didn’t give up.
Cesar Plata founded www.muybueno.net in September 1998 in Silicon Valley. This website aimed to inform and unite the Bay Area Latino professional community by promoting Business, Community, Culture, and Education.
Renamed as infoBayArea.com.net in 2004, the website served as a directory of Bay Area jobs, events and community and career resources. Cesar grew the business by distributing a weekly e-newsletter to thousands of executives, decision-makers, professionals, business owners, corporate and community leaders, and college students. He also hosted numerous monthly Business Networking Expos and Mixers throughout the Bay Area which offered opportunities to network in very unique, upscale, approachable, hospitable, and professional environments.
In January 2011, Cesar and his business partner Roman Zhovtulya launched everyCircle.com - Connecting Circles of Influence. This next-generation portal designed for executives, decision-makers, professionals, business owners, and community leaders to network, earn revenues, and share information and resources.
Cesar promotes community awareness and involvement to professionals and community leaders throughout the Bay Area. Cesar has been featured in 3 books so far and believes strongly in the following statement: One major key to success is: Not what you know, or who you know, but who knows YOU! Make a name for yourself - do what is right, and let your reputation and your efforts precede you.
Prior to this venture, Cesar held technical marketing engineering and manufacturing roles at various Silicon Valley semiconductor equipment companies. Cesar holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Davis.
