Haroldo Jacobovicz (born March 9, 1971, in Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian entrepreneur, civil engineer and educator. He then attended the Escola Politecnica da Universidade de São Paulo, receiving a master’s degree in 2002.

When asked about the secret to success and energy, Haroldo Jacobovicz said: Just plain hard work and you’ll never lack for ideas. To succeed, simply try to do something you know in a very simple way and you’ll be surprised. “I learned that only with doing something I know, I can think out how to do something new. It was only with that simple idea that I thought of starting Horizons. We have to be optimistic. Successful people are optimistic. In the new world, it is essential to put your ideas in perspective and think in ways you have never imagined before,” added Haroldo Jacobovicz.
Various industries depend on robust and resilient communications. They also have their anxieties surrounding what they perceive to be highly fluctuating prices in world markets. Although prices have been fluctuating since the start of the millennium, Jacobovicz was confident that if it weren’t for the incredible connectivity that broadband fiber gives to people, businesses, and organizations around the world, he would have never been able to achieve all he has in business.
Married in 1994 and the father of two children, the 51-year old mathematician developed his education in mathematics, first starting in Economics, and then graduating in Electrical Engineering. For nearly 10 years he was involved in the construction of several projects in public and private sectors, as well as serving as a consultant in the management of big structures and civil engineering projects. Prior to the creation of Horizons Telecom, Haroldo Jacobovicz was a director of TRACO, an information system company dedicated to the expansion of the telecommunications industry and the elaboration of concepts for telematics and the use of software in public infrastructure projects.
