Office Hours Podcast: Fintech Unicorn Brex's Co-Founder On Hyper-Growth and Leaving SF for LA

On today's episode of Office Hours, meet Henrique Dubugras, co-founder and co-CEO of fintech unicorn Brex.

As a self-taught teenage computer programmer in Brazil, Dubugras launched his first company, at age 16. After he sold it, he was accepted and enrolled at Stanford, but dropped out early to follow his entrepreneurial instincts.

This led him to co-found Brex with Pedro Franceschi, a business-to-business fintech unicorn disrupting the century old industry of banking small businesses.

Hear Dubugras talk about his serial entrepreneurship, Brex's hyper-growth and why the L. A. tech scene beats Silicon Valley's.

"I can categorically say if Brex was our first company, we would not have worked out." — Henrique Dubugras

Henrique Dubugras has built two unicorn companies before the age of 30. He lives in Los Angeles with his co-founder, girlfriend and dog.
