E-BUSINESS MISSION TO BRAZIL
Brazil's current population accounts for up to 200 million and almost the same amount of smartphones in use (198 million). In fact, Brazilians are the second largest users of social networks and are the testbed of new products for companies like Facebook and Instagram; Facebook opened its first innovation center in Brazil. There is no doubt that Brazilians are tech consumers!
Every large tech company is present in Brazil and more small players are arriving to provide technology solutions. Local companies and the government are embracing technology and taking advantage of the connectivity infrastructure available to grow their business and services.
There are many opportunities in Brazil for tech companies.

E-BUSINESS MISSION TO COLOMBIA
Despite a turbulent past (screened in Netflix), the country is today a vibrant startup ecosystem and one of the fastest-growing in Latin America, spurred by a high entrepreneurial generation, government support (regulations changes, accelerators, and grants offer), and the entrance of foreign capital.
Colombia has a population of 50 million with internet penetration of 65% and mobile penetration of 64%, and the 4th largest number of internet users in Latin America. The country has become a testbed for start-ups and scale-ups doing their inroads in the Latin American market.
The country's lack of banking, education, and health services to all its population becomes the opportunity for many tech companies enabling access to these services.
In Fintech Colombia represents 13% of the Latin American ecosystem with 148 companies and less than half of the population has access to bank accounts.
The lack of infrastructure and inability to keep educational courses to high demands are opening more opportunities in the e-learning space, from early childhood education to career development and also language studies.
Digital adoption in health is riding the wave, several companies are providing services in telemedicine (for example a rise of 423% appointments in Doc-Doc during quarantine), and an increase in the use of an online pharmacy.
