He co-founded several startups both local and abroad, served as solutions architect for several companies, designed hardware circuitry for OneWatt, and was recently nominated as Developer Hero in the Asian Rice Bowl Awards. His suman sushi is still waiting to be recognized.




Em Bueta is the Gloop’s Futurist — basically, he provides & enables his & his friends’ geeky obsessions. An Electronics & Communications Engineer by training, a developer in practice,startup founder based on temperament, a teacher just because, and ambivert by necessity; he had served for almost a decade in the trenches of the tech industry in all capacities.
