QED Investors hires Camila Vieira to expand Brazil footprint
ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- QED Investors, a leading global venture capital firm focused on investing in disruptive financial services companies, today announced the hire of Camila Vieira.
Camila joins QED as the company’s first employee based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she will have a focus on early stage investments.
As an investor and operator with experience working in different regions, Camila brings a well-rounded experience for the region where she will be able to connect founders and startups to valuable resources and leverage QED's deep fintech experience.
“Camila is a passionate believer in financial inclusion,” said QED Investors Managing Partner Nigel Morris. “She is a formidable, seasoned talent, bringing a combination of deep operational expertise and a strongly held passion for democratizing access to financial products in Brazil. She is a terrific addition to our growing global team to help founders build scalable ways to reduce friction.”
Prior to joining QED, Camila spent her career in technology and financial services. She started her career at Moody’s, a credit rating agency, before joining Goldman Sachs to focus on corporate credit and economic risk.
Later, as part of Goldman's investment banking division, Camila helped fintech, software and e-commerce companies raise capital and cross over from private to public markets. She went on to join the global strategy and corporate development teams at Ceridian, a global software company servicing more than 160 countries. More recently, Camila spent time at Hotmart, a Brazilian tech unicorn whose platform facilitates sales of digital products enabling creators to build, monetize, manage and grow globally. There, she led strategy and operations, ESG and investor relations.
“QED played a key role in the explosion of the fintech ecosystem in LatAm, and I share the belief that this is only the beginning of a profound change,” said Camila. “QED has continued to invest in best-of-breed entrepreneurs and prove their excellence as founders, partners, entrepreneurs and builders. To be surrounded by this level of conviction and quality of talent is incredibly exciting.”
Founded in 2007, QED Investors has invested in more than 180 companies, including 26 unicorns, and has $4.8 billion under management. In September 2021, QED announced it had closed a substantially oversubscribed $1.05 billion fund, including $550 million in QED Fund VII for early stage investments and $500 million in a new Growth Fund.
