Our team was inspired to build UnityB2B after experiencing the difficulties that large corporations and small businesses have when attempting to work together. UnityB2B automates the tasks and workflows that prevent fluid engagement between buyers and sellers. The software also identifies the most significant opportunities for economic impact and allows buyers to evaluate future purchases and RFPs holistically, instead of trying to look in the rear view mirror a year later.
Reinier Moquete is Founder & CEO of UnityB2B, a division of Advoqt Technology Group — Advoqt builds custom software, security, and automation solutions that leverage machine learning and artificial intelligence to improve business outcomes.
Reinier’s journey from an at-risk inner-city youth to a successful technology executive drive him to “pay-it forward” so he has integrated that passion into ventures such as CyberWarrior Academy (a Cybersecurity workforce development and training institute focused on people of color, women, and veterans), Diversity IT Network (a leadership development program for multicultural IT professionals), Latino STEM Alliance (a non-profit that teaches over 700 kids a week how to build robots), and the Latino Legacy Fund at The Boston Foundation (the first permanent endowment for Latino serving organizations in Massachusetts), among other volunteer activities, mentorship, and speaking engagements.
