Valued at $2.6 billion and unicorn status in less than one year, Brex – the credit card for startups, has hit a number of milestones in record breaking time. Since their 2017 launch out of Y Combinator, they’ve become an instant hit in Silicon Valley by helping other startups gain access to corporate credit cards - which has historically been blocked by commercial banks. Brex has been able to solve a major problem which accounts for their considerable growth trajectory. So how did they do it?
Henrique Dubugras – age 23 and Stanford dropout, is the Co-founder of Brex. He'll share how he and his co-founder came to America from Brazil and built a hypergrowth startup from the ground up. He’ll discuss how they pivoted quickly from their original startup idea and narrowed in on the problem they knew they could solve, along with the uphill climb once they left Y Combinator.
From the wins, to the losses, and the responsibility of running a $2.6 billion startup – he’ll offer lessons learned, share key scaling tactics, outline the steps from a single product to a brand, and the importance of pacing your product growth by building one section at a time.
Networking and drinks to follow.
