    About us

    Brazil at Silicon Valley is a movement and conference spearheaded by students from Stanford and Berkeley that aims to improve Brazil’s competitiveness through innovation and technology. We organize an annual conference where we bring together the most influential Brazilian executives, entrepreneurs, experts, and policy-makers to discuss topics that are relevant to the country's technological development.

    The event hosts panels in which Brazilian decision-makers interview world leaders and experts about topics that are relevant to Brazil’s growth. In our first edition, we had Carlos Brito (CEO of AbInbev) interviewing Vinod Khosla, David Velez (CEO and Founder of NuBank) interviewing Doug Leone, Julio Vasconcellos (Co-founder of Canary) interviewing Marcelo Claure, and Jorge Paulo Lemann (Co-founder of 3G Capital) interviewing Scott Cook.

    Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this year's conference has been redesigned and will comprise 5 digital panels focusing on three key topics: Innovation Ecosystems, Disrupted Industries, and Social Impact. All panels will be broadcasted via our Youtube channel.
