Helping tech startups scale

For the past 7 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 aimed at fostering entrepreneurial tech communities.

The goal of Baybrazil mentor program is to provide startups with equity-free access to advice, connections and resources in Silicon Valley and Brazil. For that we match founders with mentors who will help entrepreneurs to thrive and achieve their goals.
