ColdBox Magazine

“Luis Majano, a Salvadoran tech entrepreneur, left his home country at 17 to pursue computer engineering. Years later, his passion for technology led him to excel in software development, becoming a leading expert in the "Coldfusion" programming language.** In 2006, he founded Ortus Solutions, and the company's flagship product, Coldbox, gained widespread adoption with at least 200 major companies**, including NASA, General Electric, Adobe, and L'Oréal, utilizing his open-source code. In 2019, Majano returned to El Salvador, considering it a potential headquarters for Ortus Solutions.

With a team of 20 individuals, the company develops new versions of Coldbox and innovative technological products, contributing to the evolving tech landscape in El Salvador. Majano's vision is to expand his company and foster leadership and development initiatives within the local community, leveraging the potential of young Salvadorans in the tech sector.

"I wouldn't be here if it weren't for that progress I see. It's motivating to be able to undertake more initiatives. I want to form leaders." - Luis Majano, CEO Ortus Solutions

Luis Majano's impact extends beyond Ortus Solutions as he actively shares his knowledge through books, training, and conferences.His commitment to fostering technological growth in El Salvador is evident in plans to establish the main headquarters in the country, where teams from the United States and Spain can collaborate. Majano envisions creating leaders and supporting projects through partnerships with educational institutions, exemplified by his recent conference, "Into the Box," at the Escuela Superior de Economía y Negocios (ESEN).
