Peixe Urbano

Peixe Urbano is the first and largest Brazilian local commerce company. It helps people explore the best things to do in each city while helping local merchants develop their businesses. Founded in the beginning of 2010 by three friends – Julio Vasconcellos, Emerson Andrade and Alex Tabor, the company is backed by six leading global investment firms as well as by Brazilian TV celebrity Luciano Huck. With more than 20 million registered users, Peixe Urbano is one of the most visited websites in the country. In January of 2012, it was the first Latin American company to be named “Best International Startup of the Year” during the Crunchies Awards, in San Francisco, CA - one of the most esteemed awards of the internet and technology sector.
