The Scoop

OrangeMico LLC is a multidisciplinary technology company specialized in high-performance computing and smart-phone applications located in Brooklyn, NY. César August Naranjo first conceptualized OrangeMico in 2009 after spending several years working for Hedge Funds building mathematical and risk systems. When Alejandro completed his Masters in Electrical Engineering at Columbia University, the brothers recognized that together they had a unique skill set that could set them apart as entrepreneurs. They combined their expertise in finance, management and mathematics with their creative training in technology design. They launched OrangeMico LLC from a small Brooklyn apartment in February 2010 and shortly thereafter moved to their current location in DUMBO Brooklyn. With their new office at the center of New York City's tech Start-Up scene, they are in the forefront of the new technology trends.

The company had two major goals: first, to develop high-grade financial solutions applications that served the needs of a specialized expert market, and second, to develop cutting-edge Smartphone applications for a wider consumer market. They believe that both markets are rapidly growing and want to be major innovators in both.

Co-Founder and Senior Developer

Before conceptualizing OrangeMico in 2009 César worked for 7 years at several top-tier hedge funds in New York City implementing advance pricing and risk models as well as less sexy information systems.

He soon realized that he had the unique set of skills in mathematics and programming to develop high-performance financial software and high-end smartphone applications.

In 2009 César was part of the winning team, PODER, of the $100k Stewart Satter Family Prize for best Social Venture; he continues to contribute to the organization’s efforts in Latin America.

César graduated from Carnegie Mellon in 2003 with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. He lived several weeks in the Caribbean Ocean on a student sailing vessel and he enjoys Capoeira in his spare time. He speaks English and Spanish, some Portuguese and enough German to buy groceries.
