About Thiago

I like bold ideas and challenging problems.

Passionate for helping entrepreneurs, high achievers, and ambitious teams grow.

Core strengths: management consulting, investment-thesis building, international business development, growth equity analysis, business strategy and financial modeling.

Interested in the intersection between technologies and social impact where people are provided with opportunity.

I want to establish a world-class private equity fund focused on Latin America to increase efficiency in our business environment by mobilizing resources to introduce ethical and corporate governance in the private sector. This fund will employ effective management techniques and adequate capital structures to improve weak performers in order to help unlock the latent potential of the economy.
