For the past 6 years BayBrazil has played a leading role in building the Brazilian-American tech hub in Silicon Valley.
Through exclusive programs, events & conversations we’ve been facilitating new opportunities, partnerships, connections among over 8 thousand entrepreneurs, investors, academics, business leaders and government representatives.
BayBrazil has been also mapping the Brazilian diaspora in Silicon Valley and encouraging these professionals to interact among themselves as well as with Brazilian entrepreneurs looking for guidance and connections to expand their companies. These efforts resulted in a mentoring program, which just got expanded through our partnership with Launchpad.
“We are thrilled to partner with Google Developers Launchpad to add support to Brazilian startups and connect founders with mentors who will help them to solve critical business challenges”. Margarise Correa, Founder & CEO of BayBrazil.
“The partnership between BayBrazil and Launchpad has created an incredible impact in Silicon Valley and in Brazil. Working hand in hand we are able to increase our global knowledge base and mentor network, overcome “local gaps” in the Brazilian startup ecosystems and give the innovative Brazilian startups the Silicon Valley and global support they need to be successful”. Roy Glasberg, Global Lead Google Accelerator & startup program.
“Building partnerships like this is a key part of the BayBrazil vision of bringing some of the elements of Silicon Valley’s “magic” to the thriving Brazilian tech startup scene – we can help accelerate their success by exposing them to experts across functions.” Avanish Sahai, SVP of Alliances & Channels @Insidesales.com, BayBrazil Board Member.
“This partnership with Google Developers Launchpad enables BayBrazil to accelerate its goal of helping Brazilian technology companies acquire Silicon Valley expertise and best practices. It’s projects like these that make BayBrazil the go-to forum for professionals and entrepreneurs for everything related to the Brazil-Silicon Valley technology ecosystem.” Vicente Silveira, Head of Fraud Data Science at Uber, BayBrazil Board Member.
Through a series of workshops, BayBrazil & Launchpad will assist selected Brazilian startups to gain access to resources and advice from Silicon Valley mentors and investors.
Startups founders, CEOs & CTOs will participate in special mentoring sessions, organized by BayBrazil, with professionals who have both entrepreneurial and corporate experience & a technical training, organized by Launchpad, where they will sit side-by-side Google experts such as engineers, product managers, user-experience experts, security engineers to improve and scale their offerings.
The first workshop will be held on September 14-15, 2016, at Google headquarters. Stay tuned for details!
