A New Life in Natural Paradise
A NEW LIFE IN A NATURAL PARADISE
Nicolás Magni Co-founder at Wolox
Joined Vistage in 2018
I grew up in a family of entrepreneurs — my father, sisters and brother all started businesses. In 2012, I was 1 of 7 co-founders who launched Wolox, a digital product creation company devoted to transforming industries through innovative technology.
I joined Vistage in 2018 when we were opening a new delivery center with a plan to expand from 150 to 400 staff members. My Chair had expertise with big commercial teams and strategy so it was exactly what I needed.
“We were looking for a better place to raise our kids and were tired of the city routine. Now we live in paradise! During the winter we go alpine skiing. In the summer, it’s biking or kite surfing on the lake.”

I moved to Colombia and then Mexico with a two-year plan to scale and transform our business from software to digital products. But in 2020 my second son was born, and I wanted to spend more time with my family.
In 2021, we sold to Accenture, and I stayed on as a senior manager for about a year. During this time, my wife and I visited Patagonia and fell in love with it; we moved there in December. It’s safe, secure and a natural paradise. It’s also a great place to raise kids.
Now I spend quality time with my kids, playing and reading to them. We go biking, kite surfing, skiing and have all kinds of family adventures. My wife — who is also in the tech world — and I are putting a lot of effort into creating a sense of community here. We often come together with other tech people, just to work in the same space and spark ideas.
I also have a lot of time to think about what I’d like to do next. A new kind of platform is emerging called “Web 3.” It’s a more decentralized structure for companies. It’s going to give the information and power to the creators, artists and users, instead of keeping it centralized within big corporations. The people will own their content … everything will be totally transparent. It’s a good thing that’s happening, and I want to be part of it.
