Joan Cwaik

In 2015 he was selected to dialogue with the then president of the United States in Barack Obama’s Town Hall, and in 2016 current President Mauricio Macri defined him as a “disruptive”in one of his speeches.

He serves as Marketing Manager for Latin America at Maytronics, a leading manufacturer and marketer of swimming pool cleaning robots and developer of the popular Dolphin robot series, which introduced the first domestic robots to the market in Argentina and Latin America.

Between 2016 and 2018, he was the coordinator of the Technology Dissemination Center at UADE, whose main objective is to identify and develop the internal and external visibility of works and projects of outstanding students and graduates from academic sectors linked especially to engineering and exact sciences.

His familiarity with digital and innovation world led him to dedicate his life to technology and its dissemination, and his teaching vocation made him a university professor since 2014. He is currently a teacher at the Faculty of Communication of the UADE Foundation.

Concerning his business activity, since 2015 he has been collaborating in the technical production of the Aquadance segment of the TV program “Bailando por un Sueño” (Showmatch), produced by LaFlia Contenidos. This segment consists of an aquatic track with waterfalls and special effects that serves as a stage for the complex performances of various artists. With a combination of acrobatics and dance, it has become the most important staging on Argentine television.

If we imagine a straight line, one end of which is called “develop” and the other “divulge”, we would find Joan Cwaik in the middle. He is very good at communicating and making technology, he knows how to find the right balance between journalistic work, doing and science. In this sense, in 2016 he developed the Tecno-rupción cycle, a video for the prestigious newspaper La Nación, focusing on the social impact of new technologies rather than their economic nuance. Taking advantage of interaction with people outdoors, he managed to get the issue out to people who may not have access to it. It was also the first time that an Argentine media could experience Microsoft’s HoloLens mixed reality lenses.

In the same line, Radar, its YouTube channel, co-produced with Fav! Network took the initiative to concentrate on technological breaking news. In this platform, the first transmission was made that used the mixed reality to compose an image.

In radio, he was in charge of a column on technology in the program Benditos 90 (transmitted by FM Millenium 106.7), integrated by a panel of young and awake people, that offered a contemporary perspective of the presented elements. This is the program where he had the most hours of radio presence.

During 2016 and 2017, Joan made several audiovisual contents and collaborations with well-known influencers such as Grego Rossello, Stephanie Demner, Nicolás de Tracy and Federico Cyrlunik.

As a corporate lecturer, he was invited by companies such as Accenture, Oracle, Frávega, Banco Patagonia, Fibertel/Cablevisión, LG, Telecom/Personal, Lenovo, Fernet Branca and Grupo Clarín, among others, to carry out corporate training and consulting.

As a broadcaster, he is a regular visitor to CNN, Telemundo and Telefé Noticias and collaborates as a technology columnist in La Nación and Infobae newspapers, FM Rock And Pop radio and Télam news agency, among other media.

His father was one of the pioneers in the commercialization of domestic robotics and played a key role in his life. Perhaps Joan’s teaching vocation comes from him, and his father is, without a doubt, the inspirer of his interest in everything technological, as well as of his work philosophy.

Joan is not afraid of challenges and loves constant improvement. Some people think of technologies as synonymous with the digital, with something abstract happening inside a computer. This is not his case because he concentrates much more on the physical or the tangible, without losing the notion of the real, looking for what may exist in the short and medium-term, that is, those technologies that can be felt shortly.

His entrepreneurial, academic and technology specialist veins intersect around this axis. If we know his path, we can understand his statement: “Technology is a great potentiator for human progress”..

En 2017 In 2017 Forbes Argentina magazine named him one of the six most influential young sub-30 people in Argentina and in 2019 he was distinguished by the National Youth Institute of the Nation’s Presidency and the International Youth Organization as one of the Outstanding Young Argentines of 2019 for his contribution to Argentina regarding the theme of Technological Dissemination.

His first book, “7R”, will be launched in February 2020, edited by the Penguin Random House publishing group.

Innovative mind and disruptive spirit. As technology, Joan Cwaik and his work never stop.
