Pedro Almeida’s stuff

  • As always, I am open for business. Made 1 investment last month, not yet public (though having difficulties in keeping it to myself, as I am very excited about it)
  • Thanks for your great enthusiasm and feedback on this newsletter. I have made a few improvements, particularly on the KPIs section, hope it looks nicer. (apologies for any typo — I am really good at it!)
  • João Leite, my good friend and Innovation Director at Pestana, joined me curating this newsletter. Welcome aboard!
  • I am also running a survey aiming to understand more about the investors’ landscape. If you are an entrepreneur, please fill in this survey
