Faleiro associates are involved with a number of different organizations and programs. From teaching in the classroom to seats on boards to advisory roles, the following is a listing of just a few of the groups that Faleiro is proud to support.
Kingdom of Belgium
At the heart of Europe, Belgium is a political, corporate, education, research and technology, military, and logistics center. The hub of the European Union’s governing institutions, and home to NATO headquarters, Brussels is also the capital of Belgium. Brussels has been ranked as one of the top cities in Europe for having regional headquarters of multinational corporations, and there are an estimated 4000 global corporations who have offices in Belgium. This is a country who touches nearly everyone. From major European logistics centers to breakthrough pharmaceuticals; from several of the top technology universities in the world to the European Space Agency’s In-orbit Satellite Testing and Control facility; from the world’s largest brewing company, AB InBev, to over 400 artisanal beers, it is hard not to somehow have a connection with Belgium. Managing Director Christian Bartley has worked with representatives of the Belgian federal and regional governments and trade offices for more than 20 years. He has received multiple appointments, by Royal Decree, to be an advisor to the Kingdom of Belgium for matters of trade and economics.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology: IDEAS
Part of MIT’s Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center, MIT:IDEAS is a program that embodies the institute’s mission of connecting knowledge with practical application by empowering students to create and grow sustainable social enterprises that tackle a myriad of global issues. It is focused on solving real problems affecting real people around the globe through innovation, education, mentorship, and entrepreneurship. Entering its 15th year, the program has seen initiatives run in 44 countries, and of 128 winning teams, nearly 50% are companies or non-profits still operating today. Several of Faleiro’s associates are involved in supporting the IDEAS program in a number of ways including sitting on the board, participating in board committees, providing mentorship, and being a judge in the MIT:IDEAS Global Challenge competition.
Angel Venture Forum
The Angel Venture Forum (AVF) is an ad hoc group of more than 30 active, experienced angel investors from more than 24 angel investor groups located throughout the Mid-Atlantic region who have come together to provide training, mentorship, and the opportunity to invest. A six-month program that culminates in one of the largest expo, networking, and pitch events in the DC metro area, held annually at that prestigious National Press Club. Faleiro has been one of the lead sponsors of the AVF for four years running.
Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM)
The Tec de Monterrey, as it is more commonly known, is one of the largest private universities in Latin America with 31 campuses in 25 cities. Based in Mexico, its EGADE business school along with several of its programs have received top tier rankings by the Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Economist to name a few.
