Another exciting visit was with Apontador LBS holding group, a leading Geolocation company in Brazil. The young entrepreneur CEO Moacir Kang walked us through the business concept. They simply identified a need in the market and moved forward to fill the gap. Their mission is to connect people, places and information to simplify everyday life in Brazil. The site brings more than 17mil new visitors monthly searching for properties, restaurants and other relevant information. They have Map link which is similar to Google map. Apontador partners with industry giants like Microsoft and already has a presence in three other countries in Latin America, but they choose to stay in Brazil. The company currently employs about 110 people providing GIS intelligence, real time traffic services and developing new services for mobility optimization for public and local transportation. They plan to enhance their sustainability platform through their smart cities smart road to facilitate carpooling among daily commuters. This presentation also reminds me that there is nothing free in this world. When we download free apps it's an exchange for the right to track us, observe our behavior, collect data and sell the data to those who can use it. Today’s way of life!!!
Last night in Sao Paulo: Fernando made reservation at the Hotel Unique Skye bar. Enjoyed Caipirinhas, listened to good music on the roof top by the pool. Vanessa and I shared a shrimp pizza. What an incredible panoramic view of the city!!!
