Our Team

 

Jose A. Sanchez

Director & Founder

Jose graduated from Lynn University (Boca Raton – USA) with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration and Aviation Management.
Born and raised in Paraguay, he attended high school in Asuncion, before he moved to the USA as a legal immigrant. Jose started his college career at Graceland University in Iowa, as part of their NAIA soccer team, and received athletic and academic scholarships. In 2009 he transferred to Lynn University, and decided to take a business major.
As part of those studies, Jose developed the idea of a college consulting and scholarship service in Paraguay, that he knew was missing in Asuncion, and created an early business plan for what is now Edukate. After he graduated in 2012, he founded BWS, the previous company that held the first ever US College Soccer Showcase in Paraguay in March 2014. It gave over 100 players the opportunity to meet 7 college coaches from across the United States. 12 of these players are now enrolled, receive scholar-ships and pursue bachelors and masters degrees in the United States.
Jose is also very passionate about the social aspect and the responsibility a business has toward society and the environment. He is currently developing Edukate’s projects that will eventually help many children in need to gain access to valuable and sustainable education.
