NE: My CONNECT experience in Brazil
"CONNECT was awesome! It was the best experience of my life. CONNECT gave the possibility to test my business idea in Brazil and gave really good opportunity to learn from experienced people and to get to know new market. For a humble Estonian, living in Brazil was very positive. Most of the time was spent talking with potential customers and building the product. Moving to Brazil and organizing things there was made very easy by my host entrepreneur. Since our business is young, it would help to speed up the growth and be beneficial for both countries. The idea of long-term partnership is fascinating and opens up possibilities for wide range of knowledge/service exchange."
HE: My collaboration with a European entrepreneur
"Raido is an entrepreneur by nature. Curious, willing to learn, collaborate and meet new people and stories. Since his arrival, he sought to adapt to the city and to our culture, so different from Estonia, his country of origin. Through CONNECT the new entrepreneur had the opportunity to validate the solution proposed by his start-up, Responso, with some customers in Belo Horizonte. He had the opportunity to listen experienced entrepreneurs and participate in some of the Techmall activities, our accelerator for startups. The language barrier made it difficult to meet more customers for his product."
