Parabéns! We reached a new milestone in São Paulo, Brazil, this month at our first ever OurCrowd Sync Conference, our biggest event outside of the OurCrowd Global Investor Summit. The event was maxed out and saw major players from the Latam tech ecosystem interacting face-to-face with industry leaders and decision-makers from the region and beyond. We also announced the launch of OurCrowd’s office in São Paulo, which we believe to be a key region for innovation. Look out for additional Sync conferences coming to your region soon!
