Robert Moroz is seasoned investments strategist and international business development executive, who has spearheaded equity derivatives operations and commodities projects in the U.S. and emerging countries. After helplessly observing the plight of indigent people in rural regions of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, Robert embarked on a quest to find an effective and sustainable solution to ameliorate their predicament.

To that end, brubru, Inc., a nonprofit corporation was formed, in order to combat income inequality, promote gender parity and social justice, and to empower the remote regions, by providing them with cellular coverage and internet access at the lowest possible price point (and ultimately for free).
