Remessa Online is a Brazilian company founded in 2016 to provide international payment and money transfer solutions through a cross-border infrastructure. In 5 years they went from a team of 3 to more than 200, acquired more than 350.000 customers, transacted more than R$11 billion, and did more than 527.000 thousand operations.
In this episode, we deep dive into Alexandre's background in Asset Management and Investment Banking, his lessons from founding a Venture Builder, and his decision to focus on Remessa.
In the episode, I asked him questions such as:
You spent years in the financial sector, working at Asset Management and Investment Banking at companies such as Santander and JPMorgan. How was transitioning from finance to tech?
While building Remessa, you also built MAR Ventures, a venture builder. How did you manage to balance the time and energy you allocated to both?
Since 2018, you have changed your habits, lost a lot of weight, and started to practice sports such as surfing and cycling to focus more on your health, and you lost a lot of weight. What sparked all these changes, and how was the process for you?
I hope you enjoy the episode as well.
ps: last week's episode with John Cowgill had many highlights, and you can watch them on the Inevitable Clips channel!
“I’m in trouble because I'm normal and slightly arrogant. A lot of people don't like themselves and I happen to be totally in love with myself.”
― Mike Tyson
“I don’t care how good you think you are, or how great others think you are—you can improve, and you will. Being relentless means demanding more of yourself than anyone else could ever demand of you, knowing that every time you stop, you can still do more. You must do more. The minute your mind thinks, “Done,” your instincts say, “Next.”
"Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting: The Soul that rises with us, our life's Star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar: Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come"
― William Wordsworth
The minute you stop caring about what others think is when you wake up to self-actualization.
Founders that build decacorns are the ones that are at peace with themselves, to the fullest extension.
The Soul is individual.
We all come to the earth plane with a specific plan.
The further we run from it, the more the ego is fed it's favorite food: useless mental drama.
Once you understand how to overcome resistance and build via your SELF you will prevail.
Like a relentless force of light, it is impossible to cancel an inevitable founder.
You can't kill, reproduce or beat anyone at their own game.
The path to eternal victory comes from pure authenticity.
