Innovation Summit Brasil 2019

Kicking off its initial edition, the 2019 Brazil Innovation Summit was established to assemble two thousand people from Brazil and throughout the world to discuss the “Ecosystems of Innovation: creative, connected and competitive.”

The main purpose of the event is to draw up proposals to support and stimulate investments in innovative entrepreneurship within Brazil. As such, the event will gather a variety of agents to define actions geared towards strengthening the capacity for innovation, the competitiveness of the country’s economy, the environments that promote innovation, scientific research, the interaction between research institutions and companies, the attraction of capital, entrepreneurial culture, and the creation of jobs and income.
