"Nowadays detecting cancer means that something hurts, you have a symptom, it means that it’s probably a cancer that is stage three or four, that is a more aggressive or more advanced cancer where the treatment will be more painful and expensive for everyone. If you detect a cancer in stages one or two, the same treatment can work for you much better."

Jorge Soto is an entrepreneur and Electronics Engineer from Tec de Monterrey 2009 and graduated from the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University in 2013. In 2010, Jorge launched the company Citivox in order to help citizens, civil society and governments and institutions to work together to improve their communities.
