I hope everyone had a great week. I’m excited to share my latest podcast with Gean Chu.
Gean is a partner at Honey Island Capital, a Curitiba-based venture firm founded by several veterans of fintech unicorn Ebanx. In this conversation we discuss Honey Island's investment theses and portfolio of companies that provide credit and financial services to underbanked populations in Brazil.
We also explore Honey Island’s new Web3 fund, managed by Gean, which is focused on liquid tokens (as opposed to equity) and on-chain strategies like staking, farming and liquidity provision.
We also dive into Gean’s previous life as a computer engineer and entrepreneur before coming into Web3 - including a startup that became one of Brazil’s largest ice cream companies.
