In Nov/04 we participated in the Workshop Brazil-Canada Connect, sponsored by the Committee of Young Entrepreneurs (CJE) / Group for International Relations (CRI) of FIESP.
Our speaker was Ilya Brotzky, CEO of VanHack, a group of Brazilian and Canadian startupers for connecting Brazilians interested in this area with the technology hub of Canada (focused on Vancouver). They work with the support of three main pillars, Support, Connection and Content, in order to provide experiences that help in the preparation of the professional.
The year 2015 was considered the best year for investment in Canada, surpassing the last 14 years. Canada is also considered a friendlier gateway for those who have or do business in North America.
Ilya Brotzky addressed topics such as Best practices for doing business in Canada, Preparation tips for working in an international startup and How to capture foreign funds and investors seek a startup.
We could also count on the virtual chat with Fred Rego, Brazilian investor who currently lives in Vancouver and is a partner of VanHack . Fred Rego told of his professional experience and answeredquestions on investments and Brazil x Canada’s labor market.
