Brazil's Warrior Entrepreneurs

Brazil’s economy is in recession, and near-term projections don’t forecast a turnaround anytime soon. Challenges are nothing new to many innovators in the country, however, so don’t expect the nation of 200 million to lose its entrepreneurial spirt. “A Brazilian tech entrepreneur is a warrior,” Bedy Yang of São Paulo told Nearshore Americas. “Everything in the country is set in a way to make things harder, everything is against the entrepreneur.” In 2005, she moved to San Francisco, where she was able to find success in Silicon Valley and cultivate a network of Brazilian innovators. Good economy or bad, plenty of Brazilians will find a way to realize their dreams.
