  25. 25. Page 25 2013© 2013 Confidential Brazil put in a nutshell tradeoffs §  Seemingly endless blue ocean opportunities §  Competition is lower and sometimes unsophisticated §  Unskilled labor is cheap. Skilled labor is very expensive and often not available for startups §  In the last two years there is an increasing number of US and European VC’s making bets on Brazil §  Brazilian consumers quickly embrace certain technological breakthroughs §  Slightly higher margins in Brazil because of reduced competition and an often unpredictable tax law that forces businesses to hedge against potential tax liabilities §  Bureaucracy is stifling §  Most complex tax system in the world (and some of the highest taxes, 70% payroll tax, for instance) §  Talent can be hard to find and very expensive, particularly in the burgeoning internet market §  Cost of living is extremely high (São Paulo is 1.8x the cost of living in Manhattan) §  Employment law is burdensome and the distribution infrastructure is still underdeveloped §  Overall, the country’s tech industry is still in the early stages of developing an entrepreneurial culture and needs more success stories to encourage the sort of risk-taking familiar in Silicon Valley DownsideUpside
