Vouch for them.

Felipe Herrera
We worked together  •  Partner, Miguel Neto e Herrera Advogados. Previously Partner, Herrera Advogados.
Melanie is an extremely resourceful person. She arrived in Brazil with no job, no contacts, no friends, and she quickly found a great posit ... ion in one of the largest companies in Brazil, created an amazing network of contacts, entrepreneurs, friends, etc. Melanie and I worked together at the Founder Institute, as we were invited to bring the FI to Brazil. Knowing a little bit of MelanieĀ“s personal and professional history, I can certainly vouch for her intelligence and her drive. She has accomplished amazing things and lived in several places around the world - something only a very resourceful person could do. I consider Melanie to be an extremely competent professional and I know everywhere she goes she is liked and respected by her peers. She would be a great asset to any organization, especially so in a tech startup or any company that embraces emtrepreneurship and innovation as drivers for success.
