Investe São Paulo welcomes the largest part of the ecosystem that provides support to startups from the state of São Paulo at the first edition of SP Conecta, held at the agency’s headquarters, in São Paulo, on August 30, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Registration is free of charge with limited number of participants.

The idea is to create new connections between entrepreneurs, incubators, accelerators, academics, associations and governments to accelerate the development of startups from São Paulo. In addition, the intention is to bring startups closer to large companies and innovative corporations.

“We all know that the city of São Paulo is the capital of innovation and entrepreneurship in Brazil, but this is an opportunity to bring together all the other extremely important players in this process that are located in other regions of the state. It is a unique opportunity that will certainly encourage other similar actions in the future,” said the president of Investe SP, Juan Quirós.

The investment and export promotion agency is associated with the Department of Economic Development, Science, Technology and Innovation of the State of São Paulo.

The event includes the participation of more than 30 players of the ecosystem of support to startups that will be available to answer questions, provide guidance or even offer their services to entrepreneurs. Among them are companies that adopt open innovation, accelerators, incubators, funding agencies, research institutes, corporate and professional associations and the government itself. Thus, these institutions will be able to individually showcase their services and programs.

The schedule also includes lectures and case studies. So far, Cláudio Terra, Director of Innovation and Knowledge Management of Hospital Albert Einstein; Bruno Rondani, head of Wenovate and chairman of Open Innovation Week, and founder of the movement 100 Open Startups; Luis Ortega, Manager of Sustainable Development at Braskem, Paulo Castello, founder and CEO of Fhinck; Carlos Kokron, director of Corporate Venture at Qualcomm and Karla Bertocco, Subsecretary of Partnerships and Innovation of the Government Secretariat of the State of São Paulo have confirmed their participation.
