Caballero and His Work with Youth

Caballero wants to bridge the knowledge gap between industry and academia, and feels he is well positioned to do this work. He enjoys working with all students with an entrepreneurial mindset, not just those who have been trained in business. His work focuses on providing mentoring in this area to cultivate leadership potential to create impactful businesses.

When asked why he agreed to be a part of the Aspire Leaders community, Professor Caballero said it all comes down to providing opportunities. Having worked closely with Zarek Martínez, he recognized how many youth have the potential to turn their dreams into lived realities if given the opportunity and support to succeed. 

“These students are leaders, they have the qualities it takes, they just need the opportunity to be heard,” Caballero emphasized. “I want to do what I can to help the young leaders that are going to grow up to be the change makers proposing solutions for problems that affect society.”

Professor Caballero also praised the global network that Aspire provides. He believes that cross cultural knowledge transfer encourages today’s youth and tomorrow’s leaders to operate with global sensibility.

“All of the students I met want to be change makers,” Caballero explained about the Aspire alumni he has guided. “They all have the characteristics to lead, and their relationships with each other are formative. It really is a multidisciplinary, cross cultural learning experience.”

He enjoys working with youth, because he sees the potential in matching their curiosity and recognition of public sector problems and social issues, with his experience and findings as a researcher. 

“I just want to encourage them to explore all that they can do; try, test and validate, and rely on me to help as I can,” he said.

Caballero has advice for young leaders. He encourages the pursuit of projects that create solutions to social, environmental and economic problems —  bridging the theoretical with the practical. 

As he guides young leaders, he makes sure they understand that the best business ideas require collaboration, trial and error, passion, and minds from different disciplines and theories of thought.
