Startups Boom in São Paulo
São Paulo is the financial, industrial and cultural capital of Brazil with 12 million inhabitants. The most populated city of Brazil, it is also a major point of attraction for entrepreneurs and venture capital in South America.
As provided by Inc, there were 2,700 startups developed here in 2015.
Delivery Difficulties in South America
We took a long way to this launch. Because in spite of the economic prospects South America is a complex region for foreign IT companies.
We’ve already covered the complexities of delivering content prior to opening a new node here in the RedFox Games case.
