Yonathan Parienti

Horyou

Yonathan Parienti is the CEO and founder member of Horyou, the action oriented social network for social good. His strong knowledge of the international financial markets, drawn from his former responsibilities in major global banking groups (JP Morgan Chase, Bank of China, Julius Baer), and his conviction to make technology accessible to all, are some of the key influences that led him to envision a humanistic approach to technology; a social networking platform that is at the service of solidarity and social good. With the growing importance of social networks, he saw the challenge of combining communication with technology to promote and advance ideas, projects and actions at all levels: local, national, and global. In addition, he is one of the founders of the Horyou Foundation, which believes in active solidarity as a major factor of change for the better and will lead the way in philanthropy for a more harmonious world.
