The Bridge is a global network – or a boutique, as the company likes to present itself – for creative and tech professionals in Latin America

 

With Brazilian political parents that were exiled during the military dictatorship, Bernardo Carvalho Wertheim was born in the UK and raised in Rio de Janeiro.

He is a former digital nomad (people who use technologies to earn a living and often work remotely from foreign countries). It was when he was living in Australia that he came up with the idea for his startup, The Bridge Social. “My purpose was to help people get jobs outside their country of origin. [What] I thought was: I know so many people in the United States, Europe, Brazil, and Latin America, looking for opportunities. So I will make the bridge, I will connect talent to international opportunities,” he told LABS. That was the beginning of The Bridge’s idea, a global network – or a boutique, as the company likes to present itself – for creative and tech professionals.
