New Ventures and Fundraising
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. On his free time he practices yoga and plays the piano, so he can control his anxiety and not drive Vox’s team crazy.
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”.
