May 9, 2012 BayBrazil Peixe Urbano Alex Tabor And Julio Vasconcellos

On Wednesday, May 9, 2012 in Santa Clara at Silicon Valley Bank, BayBrazil presented “Brazilian Founders Evening.” Vicente Silveira of LinkedIn talked with Peixe Urbano founders Alex Tabor and Julio Vasconcellos about how they brought the Groupon model to Latin America. Since 2009 they have expanded from Brazil  to Argentina, Chile and Mexico. They have attracted investment from Benchmark Capital, General Atlantic, Morgan Stanley, Tiger Global and T. Rowe Price. Other Brazilian startups are now attracting customers and investors.

My thanks to Margarise Correa  and BayBrazil team who put these fun events together. Obrigada!
