Meet the founders
Co-founder & CTO
I am a legally blind serial entrepreneur, scientist and public speaker. Being low vision makes me a unique problem-solver. I bring creativity and 20-years of entrepreneurial, business and scientific/technical experience to the job. I thrive on digging into customer needs. I love creating, optimizing and scaling products that matter.
I decided not to use traditional aids for the visually impaired because I was sick of the social stigma of my ‘disability’. I knew there should be a discreet and easy way to independently navigate my way around. That and more is Sunu to me.
Marco A. Trujillo-Tejeda
Co-founder & CEO
Robotics engineer, professional dancer and tech entrepreneur forged in Mexico’s and Silicon Valley’s innovation ecosystems. I started Sunu to engineer new horizons for the disabled community; we envision a world where people with disabilities are fully embraced and empowered.
Growing up with my best friend being deaf taught me that social inequality is more crippling than any disability. I’ve devloted my entire life to closing the gap and through technology, give impaired individuals the life every human being deserves.
Created in 2013, Sunu was founded by Marco A. Trujillo-Tejeda and Cauahtli Padilla. Marco and Cuauhtli first invented Sunu’s technology during their community service project at a school for blind children as part of their engineering degree requirement. The children used the first prototype and before long where using it in their mobility lessons and in games. The parents and teacher noticed how the kids became more confident, active and independent. Marco and Cuauhtli continued developing the Sunu Band with the intial crowdfunding support of the parents at the school.
Today, Sunu is a cross-boarder company and headquartered in Guadalajara Mexico and Boston, MA when Fernando joined in 2014. Sunu has won nurmerous awards and startup competitions. The company is an example of Meican/latino ingenuity and collaboration.
