About Me

Stephen Torres

Venture Catalyst

A little about me...


I'm an international entrepreneur, trainer, speaker, and coach. After finishing my MS in Learning Design & Technology and researching innovation education at Stanford, I decided to go on another entrepreneurial journey. I am Co-Founded and CEO of LENUSA, a hispanic focused tech firm that focuses on live events for the Latino market. I also work with high-caliber entrepreneurs, innovators, and achievers to help them build world class organizations through my company The Compendium Group.


My Background

I am an Industry Fellow and former Faculty at UC Berkeley. I've taught courses in entrepreneurship, innovation, leadership, communication, and business. I also love to facilitate learning for others on this journey called life.


My career spans consumer products, high-tech, renewable energy, education, and entertainment. I have a background in sales, marketing, business development, teaching, and class development. I've been part of companies of all sizes, from startups to billion dollar companies. I founded two startups that were both acquired, and I was CEO for an international clean-tech investor in one of his portfolio companies.


I did my undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley, I received my MBA from Cornell University, and I have a MS from Stanford University. My interests include entrepreneurship, innovation, startups, AI, human performance, mindset, learning, and achievement.


I have helped students achieve great results over my career, and many of my former students work among some of the most prestigious companies in the world. I look forward to helping you become the best version of you possible.
