What I’m up to

  • Leading the growth team at In Loco Media.
  • Founded GetEscala to help startups B2B to grow faster
  • Writing at Estrategistas about strategy, life transformation and personal growth


What do I do and how can I help you?

In 1 word: growth. In 5 words: I help companies grow. Faster.

In a paragraph: I help companies grow faster by finding and exploiting leverage points in their growth model, using systems and processes to scale the results.

I’m a problem-solver for whom the entrepreneurial inclinations result from the desire of making an impact. My life has been marked by some strong mindsets, which are better at explaining my previous experiences than any traditional self-narrative:

  • Take risks is okay if you protect the downside;
  • Money isn’t evil and wealth is a strong sign of real-world impact;
  • Everybody can get more out of life if they set their mind to it;
  • Learn by doing and with the guidance of mentors;
  • Over-promise and over-deliver.

Living life through these mindsets has trained me to create amazing results for businesses,  to solve real-life problems at scale and to keep a productive and healthy daily life.

What do they say about me?

“Startup Marketing is full of bullshit artists, and it is hard to find meaningful signal amid all the noise. Paulo is the exception that proves the rule: data-driven, determined, and persistent. With a truly strategic mind that sees twenty moves ahead, he would be an invaluable asset to any startup.”

— Skinner Layne,  co-founder of Exosphere

“Paulo is skilled and self-directed. He can take a simple idea, observe its ramifications and build a grandiose project out of it. Beyond his growth capabilities, he brings in multidisciplinary thinking, being able to contribute to multiple projects without getting lost. Paulo leads our growth team, responsible for generating and qualifying leads and experimenting with new models to accelerate our growth.”

Eduardo Martins, co-founder and CMO at In Loco Media

“Paulo is one of the sharpest minds I know at getting from problem to solution. It takes a rare combination of skills to be able to deeply understand a problem, conceptualize a solution, and then execute to make it a reality, but Paulo can do all three. He’s a pleasure to work with and brings every team up to a higher level.”

Zach Obront, co-founder of Book in a box.

Do you think we can do business together?

Drop me a line and let’s talk. Currently I’m most interested in opportunities related to already established projects looking for growth.

Yet, I’ve met truly wonderful people through the internet over the last few years, so I don’t underestimate it as a tool for creating meaningful connections. If you interested, let’s talk anyway, I want to hear from you.
