S7 Bonus: Juan Soberanis, Beacon

November 23, 2022

Code Story


Back in 1986, Juan Soberanis and his family got a personal computer for the house - a Commodore 128. He asked his mother if he could take it to his room, and taught himself how to program, and of course, he did some gaming on it as well. This was the genesis of his career path, which picked back up in college. Outside of tech, he has kids in their 20's, and spends a lot of his free time hiking and being outdoors. Juan has been working with startups for quite some time. At one point in his career, he became a contractor doing mobile development. Through a number of contracts with a specific investor, Juan found himself as the CTO of a startup, pitching an idea for what his current venture would become. This is the creation story of Beacon.
