Andrés is the Founder, Chairman and CEO of Open English, the leader in internet-based English language instruction. He is also the Founder of Next University, an online higher education institution that is bringing job-ready skills to the emerging middle class in Latin America. Next University was acquired by Open English in December of 2015. In 2005, Moreno teamed up with his classmate and friend Wilmer Sarmiento in Caracas to design a different type of online English experience. They rejected the traditional brick and mortar model and decided to create a system that would allow students to learn English online, with native English-speaking teachers from their home or workplace 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Currently, Open English has enrolled nearly 500,000 students and raised over USD $120 million in venture capital to drive the company's expansion throughout the globe. Moreno is a multifaceted entrepreneur involved in a myriad of projects of regional impact.
