Oiga Technologies was founded by serial entrepreneur, technologist and investor Michael Puscar. 

Michael Puscar (Wikipedia, LinkedIn) is a serial entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist who is deeply in love with technology. Michael is an optimist by nature, a devout catholic and transcendentalist who cares very much about humanity and is firmly committed to using technology as a catalyst for better education, wealth creation and better healthcare regardless of socioeconomic status, race or origin.  He is the author of three patents, one issued and two pending, for the use of ground-breaking search and retrieval technology, as well as neural networks and ontology-based content classification. He is a programmer by trade and his expertise is in natural language processing and artificial intelligence.  

Though Michael was raised and educated in the United States, he is fluent in four languages including English, Spanish, Italian and Chinese (Cantonese).  Michael is a frequent speaker at international conferences on topics ranging from emerging technology to macroeconomics.
