#7 - Both sides of the table: Julio Vasconcellos, Atlantico

Listen On

No matter the game, understanding the other player always helps you make better moves. This logic applies to the fundraising game too.

Julio Vasconcellos is a great example of this, being a very prolific entrepreneur and investor. Julio was Facebook’s first country manager in Brazil, back in 2010. That same year, he started Peixe Urbano, which became a leading local commerce and services company in Brazil, later expanding to other 6 countries in Latin America and eventually being acquired by Baidu. He’s been an angel investor ever since and is also the co-founder of two VC funds: Canary and Atlantico.

In this episode:

  • What makes an incredible investor and what makes an incredible founder
  • Good practices of having a board and sitting on a board
  • Dealing with advice and external opinions
  • And the challenge of balancing emotional involvement and rational thinking
