Founder, Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken


For the year 1993, our founder,  Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken, lead a multidisciplinary circle of university students (80+) to explore through gamified training: leadership skills. team building and multidisciplinary collaboration, and social impact.

Along the following years, Luis will integrate with his consultancy services the use of algorithms, capacity building,  leadership, to collaborate with companies, NGOs, and locations he visited along his travels as an impact entrepreneur 

Luis will fund his own multidisciplinary and holistic research, travels, pilot and impact projects, and innovation with his own consultancy services and entrepreneurial activities. (Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Belgium, Finland, Russia, Israel)

Between 1993 and 2021, Luis will frequently organize private multidisciplinary archeology expeditions, learning about nature-inspired math, algorithms, symbolic language, holistic knowledge, and technology of ancient cultures and civilizations. The hobby turned to become a source of inspiration for his sustainability and holistic education work, as well as key for the development of Matrix-Q Body of Work & Innovations.

Luis did run a not-for-profit organization, based in Peru, dedicated to bringing both together, travel, impact, and entrepreneurship. The Travelers Culture International Association (NGO) will become his Lab for testing innovative products, solutions, and ideas for social impact, sustainability, and responsible travel. Working in collaboration with volunteers and travelers from all over the world.  (1998-2003)

Luis will upgrade his services. products and innovations yearly, based on continued research and fieldwork. The Matrix-Q Body of work has experienced 12+ upgrades, since 1993

Back in Switzerland, our founder will start up his consultancy services, work-life balance programs, and ICT Design of solutions. To later move the headquarters of his activities to Germany, Finland, and The Netherlands in 2016

In 2016 he founded the Matrix-Q Research Institute, Stichting Luis Daniel Maldonado Fonken, aiming to leave a legacy of his works, research, and innovation for future generations. In 2017-19 two small companies will be started, ICT Applications developed, with the innovative data-driven education technology, which uses Matrix-Q Data format and algorithms, and Circular Design & consultancy, which utilizes a new model of impact assessment and circular design which is human inclusive.

Between 2020 and 2021, with a futurist perspective, Luis has led the Matrix-Q Ecosystem to an organizational upgrade, launching the Matrix-Q Multi-Business Franchise.
