With over 20 years of working experience, Daniel has participated on the start-up phase of the e-commerce company Submarino between 2000 and 2001 and has been working with initiaves for the low-income population since 2007, when he was an “intrapreneur” at Johnson & Johnson Brazil and an angel investor in a few companies. He is co-founder and Executive Director for Vox Capital since its inception in 2009. To support the impact investing ecosystem in Brazil, he helped launch the ANDE (Aspen Network of Develoment Entrepreneurs) Brazil Chapter and writes several articles about the sector.
Antonio Moraes Neto – Partner and Co-Founder More Info
Antonio is passionate about the idea that the private sector can deliver a large positive impact to the World. He began his entrepreneurial path selling sandwiches at school, to pay for prom without asking his parents for money. He was highlighted one of Brazil’s most influential people by Exame in 2011 and by the Financial Times in 2013. He is a board member of the World Economic Forum in Latin America and also integrates the Social Finance Task Force. He got a degree in Public Administration at EAESP-FGV and studied at UC Berkeley and Babson College. Obsessed with Rachmaninoff, Antonio believes his new-born daughter is probably one of the people that has most listened to Rachmaninoff’s 3rd Concerto at her age.
Gilberto Ribeiro – Partner and CFO More Info
Gilberto has experience in finance, consulting, project management and organizational development in companies such as PwC and Vale. He joined Vox in 2011, shortly after leaving Moatize, a small village in Mozambique, where he worked in the mining company’s (Vale) first coal greenfield operation. Gilberto has a degree in Business Management from FEA-USP but should also be certified as Vox’s handyman. In his spare time, he enjoys cycling and is one of the few Brazilian players of Ultimate Frisbee.
Erik Cavalcante – Partner and Portfolio Manager More Info
Erik has been stirring the Brazilian entrepreneurial scene since last century. He had the pleasure of cofounding and exiting a tech company, where, for over 10 years, he was involved on all its development stages. Nowadays, he wholeheartedly supports, and takes part in, Brazilian entrepreneurial programs and experiences. In 2012 he met Vox: an environment deeply aligned with his purposes; filled with a motivated team; expertise in technology; and a genuine desire to solve Brazil’s greatest issues. Erik holds a degree in Electrical Engineering from EE-UFMG, and completed his executive education at Babson College. He is addicted to the movies, and won’t go a day without exercise, so he can continue eating plenty of cake, like any good “mineiro”.
