CURITIBA, BRAZIL, August 16, 2019 – João Del Valle, co-founder and COO of EBANX, was a speaker at Startup Summit, an event that took place in Florianópolis city, in Brazil, organized by Sebrae, Brazilian entity that fosters entrepreneurship. Alongside Camila Junqueira, from Endeavor, and Bernardo Carneiro, from Stone, João was part of the panel Think Global – Changing the Mindset (Pense Global – Mudança de Mindset, in Portuguese). 

The executives talked about how startups can – and should – think global from day one, and shared thoughts on how to grow a business fast without losing the essence. João and Bernardo also shared how EBANX and Stone did this. EBANX started in 2012 as a company with global reach, by bridging an access gap between Brazilian consumers and international companies. It expanded its operations throughout Latin America and currently offers local payment solutions from eight countries in the region to businesses all over the world. The Brazilian company Stone did the IPO in the Nasdaq stock exchange, in 2018. 

The Startup Summit started on August 15 and ended on August 16.
