Anprotec CONNECTing entrepreneurs with top incubators in Brazil

Friday, November 7, 2014

Anprotec, the Brazilian Association of Science Parks and Business Incubators, is CONNECT's main partner in Brazil, bringing to the programme excellent innovation environments from its network.

Established in 1987, Anprotec has approximately 280 members, including business incubators, science parks, education and research institutions, government bodies and other entities focused on entrepreneurship and innovation. As the leader of the movement in Brazil, the Association operates through training activities and the articulation of public policies as well as the generation and propagation of knowledge.

Each CONNECT exchange programme is customized to the needs of the European entrepreneur. While some participants are doing their exchange in a specific company, others choose to connect immediately with several companies and potential partners in Brazil, through the opportunity of being hosted in an incubator instead.

In this sense, CONNECT has partnered with Anprotec, allowing for European entrepreneurs to have the chance to do their exchange programme in top incubators such as Instituto Gênesis in Rio de Janeiro - Rio de Janeiro, Porto Digital in Recife - Pernambuco, Sapiens Parque in Florianópolis - Santa Catarina, TECNOPUC in Porto Alegre - Rio Grande do Sul, CIETEC in São Paulo - São Paulo, Fumsoft in Belo Horizonte - Minas Gerais, CELTA in Florianópolis - Santa Catarina, InovaParq in Joinville, Santa Catarina, SUPERA in Ribeirão Preto - São Paulo.
