Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I came from a family of entrepreneurs. Currently, I am co-founder of WayCarbon (www.waycarbon.com), acting as Executive Director. The company is solid and has entered its 10th year. I am also partner in a brewing business. Cervejaria Peripécia (www.cervejariaperipecia.com.br) was born out of hobby we had: home brewing. Our market operation is still regional and we are now expanding to Rio de Janeiro and Espirito Santo. Our main product (Peripécia Tripel) won a gold medal in the South Beer Cup in Buenos Aires last year.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
