Last week, we welcomed five Brazilian startups into our LaunchPad for 'Brazilian Silicon Valley North' (BSVN), as part of our partnership with Dream2B: L2 Technology, Solides, Scicrop, Eratech, and Fitness4US. The purpose of our program was to give them the resources these companies would need to gain visibility on the North American market.
The journey for these 5 companies started back in June when Launch Academy delivered an online workshop to a large number of Brazilian tech startups on the topic of pitching to North American investors and strategic partners. Dream2B worked with these companies over the course of the summer and ultimately selected 5 to participate in the trade mission.
During their three day visit, the startups participated in three days of intensive workshops with Launch Academy mentors, industry leaders and investors. Following multiple office hours and last minute iterations, each of the companies were then invited to an exclusive pitch event with a private group of investors.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank the team at Dream2B for organizing this amazing program, and to the Brazilian Consulate in Vancouver, Brazil-Canada Chamber of Commerce, Brazilian Association of Startups (ABStartups), and Centre of Digital Media for their support.
