NE: My CONNECT experience in Brazil
by Lukas Navickas
"I could not imagine that my experience would be so great. Not only I got a chance to start a new business in a foreign country, but also got to know various Brazilian cultural insights. I had an amazing opportunity to spend 3 months in Natal and collect new experiences in the IT, Economy and Real Estate Market areas. My expectations were fully met because I opened a new business and found my business partners. With the help of host entrepreneur we successfully worked on my idea and improved it. Natal is the perfect place to start a business, as it has many useful facilities (such as incubation center) and professional human resources capital that are always ready to help. I mostly appreciated the fact that entrepreneurs do not compete between themselves, rather, they support each other all the time."
HE: My collaboration with a European entrepreneur
by Marcus Sampaio
"We believe CONNECT program is important for the dissemination of the entrepreneurship culture. We know the number of opportunities which may arise from the interaction of young EU entrepreneurs with Brazil. We have a long-term potential expectation, which may be reflected in the emerging of many promising companies from graduates coming out of our educational institutions. This will make the academic knowledge and applied research to innovation become more relevant to society. Therefore, with relevance for the development of the local economy and to generate business opportunities, jobs and income."
