Brazil’s tech ecosystem has been growing rapidly, and several startups have broken out recently on the back of big rounds.
For example, fintech startup Nubank (which received a $52M Series C in January 2016) has raised $98.3M in funding to date.
With Brazilian tech companies starting to gain momentum, we used CB Insights data to highlight 11 early-stage Brazilian tech companies to keep an eye on. These are startups that have raised funds within the last 12 months but have not yet raised a Series B round.
We used CB Insights Mosaic algorithm, which tracks the health of private companies, to identify some early-stage companies in the seed and Series A stage with traction. (Mosaic has three components, which gauge a company’s health in terms of financing, industry category, and overall momentum.)
Startups here are addressing digital health, e-commerce, logistics, and more.
