#81 - Altitud | Building the e-commerce landscape in Venezuela: Vicente Zavarce, Yummy

Listen On

Vicente Zavarce was born and raised in Venezuela, but went abroad to study in the US during his university years. He quickly found his way into their booming startup ecosystem, and went on to join Postmates' User Acquisition efforts in Silicon Valley before moving on to be Director of User Acquisition for Getaround.

His experiences led him to a lightbulb realization: what if there was an app to combine all delivery and transportation needs for countries that don't have a consolidated digital infrastructure?

That's how Yummy was born. Part of the YC21 batch, the SuperApp recently raised a $18 million Series A to accelerate their growth across Latin America, and they have presence in five countries and counting.On today's episode, we talk about:

  • Seizing a time-sensitive business opportunity
  • Smart ways to go about B2C user acquisition
  • The challenges of building a business in Venezuela
