NE: My CONNECT experience in Brazil
by Tuomas Muurikainen
"I spent one month in São Paulo. It was useful to see and feel how things are working there, what are the differences, what is missing there and which things are more advanced. With my host huge support, I was able to meet many entities such as accelerators, investors, professors, entrepreneurs, etc. People were very open to share their experience and each meeting was a great learning experience. During one month, I was able to get a very good overview of things in Brazil. And it was only a beginning. I made cooperation agreement with my CONNECT host and together we will help Nordic technologies entry in the Brazilian market."

The fact finding mission proceeded in validating the Vision and Project Concept by visitations with entrepreneurship mentors, accelerators, seed and venture funds, asset managers and government start-up funding agency. The trip mission attained its objectives with positive expectations to carry on with the project."
