Bio - Linkedin


René was born in the Bronx and grew up under the canopy of entrepreneurialism on a retail scale. His parents opened and owned what turned out to be a premier salon called The Joint. It grew from a small location on Boston Rd to a larger store on the Grand Concourse. And when René was 14 years old he suggested the family open a Jeans and Sneaker store; his parents listened and The Joint grew into a combined 2 store, larger location, fixture of the neighbourhood. “The Joint Unisex Clothing and Hair-cutters”. An odd combination but a diversity that was exciting to Rene. At 15 René’s family decided that he’d leave high school and work full time in the business and continue whatever academics pursuits he had interest in on his own.


So while he worked in the business he learned construction, retail marketing, design engineering and architectural design and model making, computer programming, invented Four Player Chess and got his GED.


Today René is the owner of a relatively new business called, Alquimi Innovations, LLC. He is a partner and CTO of Alquimi Solar and has numerous designs for Solar. He has many contacts and business interests in new and emerging sustainable energy and is working towards an ambitious plan to implement vast renewable and Earth changing technology. And seemingly counter to this, René is the inventor and developer for a radical new Dating Game for online dating called Karma the Game of Destiny.


René is an abstract conceptualist and also highly logical. He is a painter, sculptor, philosopher, dreamer and visionary but he’s also highly technical and inventive and able to realize his goals even with limited resources. So without a formal education René was able to explore and learn and build and develop technology in an array of different business layers, small, medium and corporate, with companies like Time Warner Cable and The Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention; and he also could build a tree house in the middle of Downtown NYC for wealthy clients looking for something unique.


Alquimi Innovations’ tagline is “ideas with good karma”. It’s about a long view. Lessons learned, enjoying the business, not just building something to work. It’s about doing great and wonderful things for the world. It’s a compassion for humanity coupled with an ability to formulate paths and intent to succeed, even when there are obstacles and we don’t always have all of the information. It’s an entrepreneur having finally figured out what he wanted to be when he grew up.


In a business colloquialism, its product development geared to elevating quality of life through technology and innovation. So while selling pizza for cash may have always been a practical business option, René would really only be fulfilled when he could figure out how to finance his ambitions. This is where Karma the Game of Destiny comes in.


In 2007 after a second divorce René began to study and participate in the online dating scene. His vast interests let him try lots of options. All the while, he kept thinking he could make a better site. But another Pizzeria (dating site) was not in line with Alquimi’s business model. If it were, it would have to be a better experience than what was being offered in the market; with the real goal of bringing people together, creating community and have a long view. It would also need to have an ROI and it would have to have the potential of propelling Alquimi’s products into stardom. With Karma, Rene believes he has tapped into all of the core components of a Universal Love Vending machine. He is currently working towards the product’s launch and has a media site, publicly accessible Alpha site for testing and is seeking further financing and talent to build his new company called AlquimiSoft which will be the holding company of Karma and numerous other software solutions that will come from the Incubator and design parent, Alquimi Innovations.
