João Zecchin is a co-founder of Fuse Capital, an early-stage investment firm based in Rio de Janeiro.
We discuss how the Brazilian venture community is approaching crypto, how Fuse is looking to quickly deploy capital in the "Web 2.5" space with its forthcoming crypto fund, and how institutional investors in Brazil and North America are approaching crypto differently.
This conversation was a great overview examining how the Brazilian venture ecosystem has matured in recent years, yet how raw it still is as it pertains to crypto. It also illuminated the level of opportunity that exists in this market for those with eyes to see and ears to hear, and I admire what João’s vision and forward-thinking here.
I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
