WSIS Prizes Contest 2019 Nominee

StartUp Brasil


Description

This is an initiative of the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation, and Communications (MCTIC), with management of Softex and in association with accelerators. The goal of the Start-Up Brazil program is the Brazilian Startups Acceleration Program. It aims to select and support the best technology-based companies that just started growing or have just started their work. The startups fulfill the function of continuously revitalizing the market, but they need an environment conducive to their development and success. The figure of the accelerator arises in this context as a strongly market-oriented agent, generally of private origin and with financial investment capacity, which has the function of directing and promoting the development of startups.
