Marc Barros’ father moved to Seattle from Brazil when he was 25 to start a new life. Barros, who launched Contour, a company that manufactures video cameras, while he was still an undergraduate in college, says that his father’s story has largely influenced his own approach to business. “His lessons in life have guided my own decisions, my way of approaching problems, and my openness to new cultures, languages, and ways of thinking,” he says.
