Allan Panossian

Internet Entrepreneur focused in Social Media. Excelent knowledge of web programming, interfaces and usability. Specialization in Project and Operation management.

Since 2004 I have been part of the founding team in some internet startup in Brazil.

The first one was Via6 (similiar to LinkedIn, but focused in Brazillian market) that received venture capital from Confrapar. It became the 3rd biggest social media in 2008. In 2007 we launched a Via6 extension called Rec6 (similar to Digg) that became the biggest Brazillian Digg-like at that time.

In 2006 I started a Internship in DRCLAS Harvard University, developing the new version of DRCLAS website ( and a web-based database of contacts (Mark Zuckerberg was working in the same project years before).

In 2008 me and my partners founded Direct Labs (a social media consultant that help companies to use social media in a strategic way) and Scup (a social media plataform like Radian6 for Customer Relation and Brand Monitoring).

In 2010 I joined the startup with Fernando Okumura (CEO) and Bruno Yoshimura (CTO) as a partner to lead all product-matters and user engagement.
