Carlos Edmar Pereira is the CEO and Founder of Livox, a company focused on creating innovative solutions for people with disabilities. 
People with disabilities are the group with the highest risk of social exclusion. Carlos is a father of an 13-year-old girl named Clara who, due to a medical mistake during his wife's labor, has Cerebral Palsy. Since his daughter's birth, Carlos has looked for alternatives to help her and other people with disabilities by creating a more equitable society. Livox, the app he created, is the evolution of alternative communication. Livox adjusts itself according to the user's disability and enables them to do much more than just speaking - through a tablet. Livox has already reached 20,000 people with disabilities in Brazil and is ready for the Spanish and English speaking markets. Carlos has a strong commitment with the people with disabilities. His company received a grant from Google.org and he was recently awarded as a 2017 Social Entrepreneur of Schwab Foundation.
