Want to know more about doing business in Latin America?

Latin America

A continent known for its rich history and beautiful nature. A climate that stretches from the cold of the south pole to the tropical heat around the equator. Besides Portuguese from Brazil, Spanish is the official language. Does Latin America make up to one single region? Is doing business in the metropolis of Mexico City the same as in the other metropolis of Sao Paulo? Two cities with more than 20 million inhabitants. Such a large region offers many opportunities for all kinds of products and services but… How do I start, where are my chances and how can I do good business?

Thijs Slegers tells you how

Experienced entrepreneurs and experts will show you the possibilities of Latin America. For example, Thijs Slegers of football club PSV will talk about his experiences and the way in which they focus on this region.
