Brex’s first event kicks-off on Tuesday, March 24 at 9:00am PT with Brex co-founder and co-CEO Henrique Dubugras, and CFO Michael Tannenbaum sharing their learnings from fundraising over $415M over the past 18-months and their recent pivot in light of 2019’s disappointing and failed IPOs, and more recently capital market uncertainty surrounding the implication of economic disruption due to COVID-19. In this session, Brex will take a pragmatic deep dive into specific insights and best practices companies can use to prepare operationally and position themselves to handle a volatile environment.
Henrique Dubugras: Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Brex. A Brazilian entrepreneur, Henrique built payments company Pagar.me — the Stripe of Brazil — when he was sixteen years old. In just three years, Pagar.me grew to $1.5 billion in volume of transactions processed. In the fall of 2016, Henrique sold Pagar.me and enrolled at Stanford University. After eight months, he left school and founded Brex.
Michael Tannenbaum: Chief Financial Officer of Brex. Prior to Brex, he served as the Chief Revenue Officer of SoFi. Michael joined Brex in July 2017.
