No matter how good an idea for a project is, all entrepreneurs and business owners will depend on funding to start up their ventures. Many call that initial support “seed money” because it is like planting a seed that has the capacity to grow.
Heitor Miguel is a serial entrepreneur and the founder of PMZ Capital, a venture capital company created to help funders raise money for early stage companies, such as Seed Money and Series A.
Heitor is a lawyer who transitioned into the world of entrepreneurship after he came to the United States from Sao Paulo in 2017 to achieve the American Dream doing business and investing in serial businesses.
Serial entrepreneurship was always meant for Heitor. Besides being a partner in PMZ Capital, a venture capital boutique in Miami, he is also CEO of a merger and acquisition consulting firm and is on the board of his law firm in Brazil. At the same time, Heitor runs his personal brand.
Heitor obtained a Master in Business Management in order to grow and scale his family business. In 2008, he opened a consulting company to assist in buying and selling companies, and has focused on entrepreneurship ever since.
Heitor’s biggest obstacle was moving from Brazil to the United States. He soon realized that starting an entrepreneurship from scratch in another country as a foreign entrepreneur is not easy.
Heitor believes that mindset is one of the most important things for any entrepreneur. It will come in handy in particular when facing big challenges and obstacles. He thinks it is important to have the right mentors on the side, as well as tools and skills to avoid getting lost in the way.
In 2020, Heitor’s businesses had to pivot plans due to COVID-19. They just launched a project for foreign entrepreneurs who want to engage in e-commerce through Amazon in the United States, geared mainly towards Brazilian companies that want to export goods.
By assisting foreign entrepreneurs in getting used to the United States’ market and obtaining seed support, Heitor is helping people achieve financial freedom. For Heitor, this is one of the goals to achieve success.
