Julio Vasconcellos is the Managing Partner of Atlantico, a venture capital fund focused on Latin America. Julio first started working with technology and entrepreneurship nearly 20 years ago when he first moved to Silicon Valley. He was Facebook’s first lead in Brazil, leading the company’s growth efforts to its first 10 million users in the region. Julio then co-founded Peixe Urbano, a local services company that he led in its growth to 6 countries, 1,200 employees, and 100+ million dollars in revenues. Following Peixe Urbano’s acquisition by Baidu, Julio was the CEO of Prefer in San Francisco, a company he helped found alongside partners from Expa and Benchmark Capital (where he was an Entrepreneur-in-Residence). Julio majored in finance and marketing at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and holds an MBA from Stanford University.
