Martin Varsavsky

Founder, Chairman, and CEO Prelude

Martin is Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Prelude, who has founded seven companies in the USA and Europe in the past 25 years, all of which are based on new technologies that he identified in their infancy and helped grow. Varsavsky has applied this same approach in creating Prelude, a comprehensive fertility company focused on providing proactive fertility care to improve people’s chances of having healthy babies when they’re ready. The company was established to give men and women more reproductive choices and control over their biological clocks using The Prelude Method. In the 1990s, he built Viatel, which became the first pan-European fiber optic network, followed by Jazztel, which did in Spain what Viatel did throughout Europe. When Varsavsky exited Viatel the company was worth $1.2B and when he exited Jazztel it was worth $770M. In the early 2000s he built Ya.com, the second largest Spanish-language internet portal with an investment of $28M, which was sold to Deutsche Telekom for $650M.
