Startup Acceleration Program (SAP) Highlights more Innovative Ideas
A lively event on Monday afternoon (05) revealed the star startups of the Innovativa Experience program, a program that completes the Innovativa Brasil and InnovAtiva Impacto Socioambiental accelerator courses. Targeting innovative ideas from all regions and regions of Brazil, this initiative connects startups to the market, providing connections between different actors, in order to generate potential business.
“Innovation is what we seek and this release shows the power of entrepreneurs seeking differentiation. This year alone, Sibrai has provided 530,000 services to small businesses in the field of innovation”, confirmed Solett Weizer, director of the business advisory unit at Sipra Nacional.
The finalist startups of the InnovAtiva Brasil and InnovAtiva Impacto Socialambiental programs followed individual and collective mentoring last weekend in São Paulo. Those who stood out were honored at Monday’s event, which took place at Sebrae-SP Business School, in the city of São Paulo.
The feeling among the participants was mission accomplished, communicate, communicate and learn during these three days of immersion. “I have only two words: choice and gratitude. Because here we have a selection of talents. Gratitude to the mentors and investors, to Sebra and to the Ministry of Economy, who have made this initiative possible”, said Andre Pereira, from my bio, co-organizer.
InnovAtiva Brasil was created in 2013 by the Ministry of Economy. In 2016, Sibra joined the effort and became associate director, putting the program’s activities on display across the country. The program is designed and articulated as a public management tool leading to the acceleration, communication, visibility and mentoring of startups throughout the national territory, with the aim of promoting and strengthening the innovation ecosystem in Brazil.
“We add ideas to promote and strengthen innovation ecosystems across Brazil,” summarized Maicon Staehlin, Undersecretary for Innovation and Digital Transformation at the Ministry of Economy.
