Our story

Founded by two Brazilians with a love for international business, uGlobally strives to demystify the global expansion process for early-stage companies. When we started in 2016, our founders Rodrigo Olmedo and Leo Uchoa had recently returned from business trips abroad. Still a student, Rodrigo just finished a year studying international business in Canada when he met Leo, who was previously supporting foreign companies in China.

While they ventured to different corners of the world, Rodrigo and Leo noticed a common theme: young companies viewed foreign market expansion as unattainable and impossible.

As many founders applied lean startup methodologies to their domestic ventures, Rodrigo and Leo saw an opportunity to leverage these tactics to build global startups from day one. From this idea, the first uGlobally product was born: the Global Mindset Workshop. This initial session helped Brazilian companies integrate a global perspective into their business models.

Since this 2016 workshop, the Global Mindset had evolved into a framework any tech company can apply when expanding internationally. Beyond the Global Mindset, uGlobally has expanded to include a full set of global expansion courses, business missions, online resources, and a coaching network. While our product offering has changed, our key mission has remained: dismantling the barriers of internationalization.

Our network of expert coaches

The uGlobally team knows a lot about international expansion, but we have to admit: it's impossible to know the ins and outs of every market in the world.
