Haroldo Jacobovicz’s Interview: Horizons Telecom’s Establisher

Haroldo Jacobovicz is a popular civil engineer and a businessperson whose passion for IT is incomparable. Haroldo Jacobovicz founded Horizons Telecom, Horizons Datacenter, and e-Govern Group. The agenda was to gather the right strategic materials, technical professionalism, as well as human capacity to work on some IT issues using the available solutions. These three ventures have impacted both public and private sectors, thereby transforming and improving markets in Brazil.

The company has full fiber connectivity, and the best equipment in the market. Since it was established in 2010, it has grown to become the leading telecommunication venture in Brazil, and a decade later, Horizons Datacenter was launched to extend the mission of availing cloud capacities, integration as well as organizations.

Haroldo Jacobovicz’s parents were Brazilian civil engineers. Sarita, the mum was among the state’s pioneers of female engineers ranking number seven. Haroldo was motivated by that because he relished seeing Sarita and the father establish formidable structures out of nothing.

He followed their dreams by joining Parana’s Federal University to study civil engineering for about five years. However, Jacobovicz realized that his interest was more indented to information technologies, and his parents inspired him a lot to establish something to meet the greater objectives.

Haroldo was curious about the innovations that would impact the world, thus started reading materials relative to the technology’s future in magazines and newspapers. Even though Haroldo Jacobovicz realized that luck was a crucial aspect, talent and hard work were necessary to establish something lasting. Immediately, Haroldo found three friends who had a similar passion for IT like him to establish a firm called Microsystem before graduation.

They offered solutions that helped ventures automate cash and inventory management that would be applicable today. However, at that time, the company was struggling to adjust to automation, and so it crumbled after one year.
