Brazil at Silicon Valley

A nonprofit movement bridging the most influential Brazilian leaders and Silicon Valley

Sixth Edition of the Brazil at Silicon Valley Conference

Save the date: April 7-9th 2024

We exist to serve as a bridge between Brazil and Silicon Valley

Brazil at Silicon Valley is a nonprofit movement spearheaded by students from Stanford and Berkeley, bridging the most influential Brazilian leaders and Silicon Valley. 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.

We organize a conference that help decision-makers to embrace innovation

The event hosts panels in which Brazilian decision-makers interview world leaders and experts about topics that are relevant to Brazil’s growth. In previous editions, 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.

We share the main takeaways and work towards creating positive change

Through our digital products (panels, podcasts, reports), we aim to expand the reach of our initiatives and inspire as many people as we can to contribute to the development of Brazil’s innovation ecosystem.
