Marty Aquino

"The Strategist"

Marty has raised millions of dollars for technology, cleantech and space-exploration companies. His goal is grand: to change the world by funding disruptive companies and rabble-rousing people. He understands that the truly great works of life take time and need to be executed vigorously. Starting his first business when he was in junior high school, he is an accomplished and battle-tested serial entrepreneur, having experienced the beautiful highs and soul-searching failures of business ownership.

Aquino is the creator of the proprietary Carbonwolf Energy methodology of funding projects. This method combines and choreographs several techniques that allow high-quality projects to achieve funding goals without unnecessary “brain-trust dilution,” a widespread problem where the soul of a project is fundamentally distorted or washed away post-funding –nearly always unintentionally and inadequate forecasting.

Since 2009, Aquino has over 200 published articles. He is a passionate writer on startup, cleantech, business strategy, risk management, adrenaline sports and entrepreneurial topics, writing for advice sites and other popular publications.

Prior to Carbonwolf, he worked with high net worth individuals as a banker for over a decade. This specialization helped him generate and accumulate insights on project funding innovations.

He is also former Chair of a nonprofit organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty in Southeast Asia. Marty’s hobbies include skydiving, adrenaline sports, foreign languages, rock climbing, and road rallying.
