The CEO of Web Summit says: “South American tech is on fire, and Brazil is probably the hottest startup country in the world right now. It’s time South America had its global gathering of the tech community. And we think there’s no better city to host it than Rio.”
Brazil is a market of 216 million people and the 12th most powerful economy in the world. Its dimensions are continental, and its natural resources are rich and diverse. The country has the largest startup ecosystem in Latin America, and venture capital investments reached more than $10 billion in 2021, an increase of 128% compared to 2020. In the first three months of 2022, the Brazilian ICT sector grew by 300% compared to the previous year, and 19.5 Billion US$ was invested in Latin American startups in 2021. Brazil has long offered countless business opportunities for Swiss startups, and Web Summit Rio will offer an unprecedented chance to scale or validate your technology in a giant market.
Swissnex in Brazil has been successful in internationalizing startups for nine years. We enable a soft landing and connect entrepreneurs with the right potential clients, strategic partners, and industry experts according to the startup’s needs and profile. Now, for the first time, all the relevant actors will meet in one space, opening the path for a successful market validation and market entry.
