Cesar Hernandez is a  first-generation American of indigenous Mayan immigrants from Guatemala, Cesar R. Hernandez blazed a trail to the University of South Florida where he would build a foundation to become a young leader in the business community.

Cesar has worked the past 10 years as an innovation policy advisor, public affairs strategist and government relations professional. Perhaps Cesar’s most widely publicized role to date involves his leadership in working with regional governments advocating for the safe deployment of new technology, concepts and ideas. He was the lead strategist in crafting the first ever public-private partnership between a government agency, a rideshare company (Transdev) and an electric vehicle manufacturer (Tesla) to create one of the nation’s first Hyperlink rideshare and public transit integration projects.  He also aided in Florida’s first appropriation to develop feasibility studies to explore advanced transportation modalities such as Hyperloop, aerial transit and autonomous Corridors for TBARTA. He further  helped to introduce micromobilty policy frameworks in the Tampa Bay region, advising for Bird Rides and Scoot. 

Cesar has worked alongside and with companies such as Tesla, Google, Apple, GM, and continues to advise various disruptive transportation technology companies such as Hyperloop Transportation Technologies,  micro mobility companies  Bird and Scoot,  top latam global paratransit company, Lazarillo and top UK surface transportation company MacRebur. He has also done work advising public officials on innovation policy and recently served on Tampa Mayor Jane Castor’s Transportation Advisory Team. 

Cesar’s firm currently represents top emerging technology companies across Florida such as Morphogenesis, Immertec, BeniComp, Cope Notes,  Minimise Global and top tech accelerator The Tampa Bay Wave. He is also one of the founders of the Tampa Bay Mobility Alliance and is the Current President of the Tampa Bay Latin Chamber of Commerce.
