Hey, Welcome!
I’m Renato Carvalho.

I’m a digital designer, developer & entrepreneur. I’m the Co-founder & CTO at Startaê, a venture studio that builds great digital products.

My name is Renato, and I’ve been working with digital products for the last 14 years. In the last five years at Startaê, I've been laser-focused on helping companies and startups to be successful by creating fucking great experiences and products.

We are also building and launching our products at Startaê. Here are a few of them: Officeless, Cuckoo, Superquadra, and Yummmy.

I’m happily married and currently living in Brasília, Brazil. I love to travel, primarily to explore and connect with nature. Hiking and camping are my preferred ways to do that.

I have other passions like cooking, listening to electronic music and going to festivals. I also love photography because it allows me to explore the world from a different perspective, and I love animals too, especially dogs. I like "drugs", the ones I most like are coffee, cannabis, wine and beer. I believe they can bring benefits if consumed mindfully.

The more I learn, the more I realize how important is to have a calmer and balanced life. I'm in a constant pursuit of balancing my Mind-Body-Soul. I've been taking care of these three pillars in a few different ways and tracking them here.


You can stay in touch with me on Twitter, Medium, Linkedin, Instagram, Github and Dribbble. Or shoot me an email.
