This is also a one of a kind opportunity to meet and learn about business in Brazil because there will be a delegation of Brazilian businessmen attending including senior finance executives, bank presidents, venture capitalists, angel investors, and executives from a variety of companies related to innovation in Brazil.
Some of these businesses include important commercial association presidents such as ABStartups and CNDL, which is a Brazilian Startup Association and the Brazilian Commercial Chamber, respectively.
