3rd Annual Demo Day – Apex-Brasil and Start-Up Brasil

Apex-Brasil and Startup Brasil was back for their 3rd Annual Demo Day and Silicon Valley Forum was excited to be one of their main partners for the event. Brazil’s eleven most innovative startups of the year got the opportunity to pitch inside Techcrunch Disrupt on September 12th, 2017. They entrepreneurs pitched to a full house of more than 150 people in the room and received valuable feedback from three investors secured by Silicon Valley Forum.

Silicon Valley Forum is proud to be working with Apex-Brasil and Startup Brasil for the second year in a row, putting together another successful sold-out event.
