Alexandre wrote his first line of code when I was 13 years old. He grew up in Linux forums, which led him to study Computer Engineering at PUC-Rio. Due to a good CR (GPA), he got a scholarship to study a year in Paris, where he started studying web development. Back to Brazil, he worked mainly at startups, such as Polo Marte (startup foundry), simplestudio.com.br, and GoBooks (accelerated by 21212), which brought him in touch with the entrepreneurship world, and heavy front/backend development.
Pedro is brazilian and has worked as a professional advertisement and fashion photographer for 12 years. Living in Paris since 2012 he took a leap of faith and decided to embrace his geekiness and learnt to code at Le Wagon bootcamp. He has fallen in love with code and the Le Wagon family ever since. After working in Paris and Amsterdam as a teaching assistant he teamed up with Fernando and Mathieu to bring Le Wagon to brazil.
Fernando built a career dedicated to the world of technology, having worked for innovative companies like Nissan, Qualcomm and Startup Farm. Fernando seeks to inspire and help entrepreneurs achieve their dreams. With that in mind, he took the bootcamp in Paris and joined forces with Mathieu and Pedro to bring Le Wagon to Brazil.
Mathieu has been involved in tech startups for the last 15 years, having participated in Amazon France’s opening in 2000. After 6 years working as a VC in Paris, he came back to Brazil in 2012 to launch Deezer’s operations in Latam.
