Ballestiero & Ramos ~ MIT-Brazilian Venturing!

I was very pleased to have both Marcelo Ballestiero and Yuri Ramos join me on MaximizingProgress.tv last night! Wide-ranging discussion about their experiences this past year as MIT Sloan Fellows, their engineering and entrepreneurial past, and what venture opportunities they're interested in going-forward. Both are from Brazil, the booming growth country and we also talked quite a bit about the tremendous opportunities both in-country and for Brazilian companies to become global champions. Prior to coming to MIT, Yuri was with UOL Universo Online, the Yahoo of Brazil and Marcelo had founded and built Spirits Tecnologia, an IT software and services business, both based in São Paulo. And, of course, we spoke about the futebol team;-)
