Northeastern alumnus and founder and CEO of DeFrame, Victor Velazquez developed his passion for art and entrepreneurship at a young age, starting his first venture at the age of 15, a small printing company from his own bedroom. DeFrame has been named one of the ten startups disrupting museums by MuseumNext, was selected as one of the 100 most disruptive startups at the 2017 South Summit Startup Competition, and was featured as one of the 100 most promising startups at Hubweek 2018 Demo Day.

His hobby is to to run “a lot”. Last November he ran the longest race he’s done so far: a 31 miles trail race but since he got lost 3 times in the woods, he ended up running 36+ miles. He still managed to finish 3rd place, running an hour faster than the previous course record.
