Latin America tech is gaining more traction than ever before
Friction is everywhere and makes the startup journey painfully hard
… which then unlocks growth, economic progress, and social mobility in the region.
Latitud is building Latin America’s first remote tech entrepreneurship education platform, with equity-free cohort-based fellowship programs supporting each part of the ecosystem and kicking off our flywheel.
As the community scales, value scales exponentially as ideas, talent, and investment opportunities find each other.
While Latin America is entering a golden era for tech, it still lacks basic infrastructure, making it difficult to do what most people in Silicon Valley would take for granted. Latitud products will remove several unnecessary barriers.
We're starting with Latitud Formation, which helps founders set up a venture-backable company structure 5x more affordable and in record time.
We believe that the future of pre-seed and seed investing will be led by today’s top founders and we have the mission to decentralize and facilitate angel investing across the region.
Besides raising and investing through its own vehicles, Latitud is empowering new and existing investors with community and bespoke tools.
CEO and Co-founder
Brian founded and scaled VivaReal as the CEO. He orchestrated a merger with ZAP Imóveis becoming the chairman of the combined company before negotiating the sale to OLX Brasil for $600m. He is a prolific angel investor, author of the book Viva the Entrepreneur and host of the leading podcast about startups and venture capital in Latin America.
CTO and Co-founder
Yuri was the CTO at Escale, helping scale it through a rapid growth period after raising its Series B from top VCs like Kaszek Ventures and GFC. He participated on the board and was responsible for building a diverse tech team of 60+ world class software and data engineers, product managers and designers with over 35% women.
Especially given we’re remote, it’s easy to misinterpret, get annoyed at others, or forget to acknowledge each other.
We all have to make many decisions every day. Short-term wins are often enticing, but we keep our eyes on the long game. We’re transforming an ecosystem!
Talking about diversity is a first step, but change only happens with measurable goals. This can be reflected in terms of output and/or composition. We believe it’s not just ethical to help remedy diversity issues in the entrepreneurial ecosystem, but it's also business-savvy.
Speed of execution is crucial to succeeding when time is our biggest limiting factor. GSD = get shit done.
We go out of our way to OVER-communicate clearly, frequently and vulnerably. Most conflict happens because of misunderstandings, and especially in a fully remote team, it’s tough to keep everyone on the same page.
