In today's episode, I chat with Rodrigo Teijeiro, founder of RecargaPay, a leading mobile payments fintech in Brazil that has reached more than 3,5 million monthly active users. You can listen to it on YouTube, Spotify, and other podcast apps.

RecargaPay was founded in 2010 and has more than 300 employees in offices in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Miami. It is currently EBITDA positive, with a revenue run rate of over $50M. They recently raised a $70M Series C round, adding up to a total of $100M in funding. Their investors include Miami-based Fuel Venture Capital, Madrid-based IDC Ventures, ATW Partners, Venture City, FundersClub, and many others.

During the episode, we discussed Rodrigo's trajectory until the creation of RecargaPay, his lessons since the early days of being an internet entrepreneur, and the ethos of Miami in the latest months.

I also asked Rodrigo:

  • In 2002, you achieved US$10MM in yearly revenue from (known as in the US market), a telecommunications company that offered a wide range of products such as prepaid calling cards, pinless and rechargeable cards, PC to phone services, and prepaid wireless cards. How was your experience being a second-time founder while you were still young?
  • You've been on both sides of the table. You sold companies like Sonico, and you also bought Cupó, a coupon site that offered daily deals to its customers. How did the experience of buying a company influence your experience selling one?
  • What's the difference between building a business in Argentina, Brazil, and Miami?

I hope you enjoy the episode and hit me up to share your favorite insights from the episode.
