Startup Success in Brazil With A Foreign Accent

Brazil continues to attract international attention in part because of its thriving consumer market of over 200 million. Slightly more than half of the Brazilian population currently has internet access and approximately 50 million own smartphones. Gustavo Caetano, president of the Brazilian Startups Association and one of Brazil’s most successful Internet entrepreneurs, will lead a discussion accessing the maturity of Brazil’s startup ecosystem. Gustavo will be joined by a representative of the governmental initiative Startup Brasil to discuss how their program of recruitment of foreign startups to Brazilian accelerators is adding value and driving scale. The panel will highlight success stories of the 10,000 startups already flourishing in the country, including those founded by foreign entrepreneurs, and outline the exciting opportunities in Brazil’s internet savvy market.
Presented by Apex Brasil.
