Futurecom 2014 to hold Startup Contest

 

In a joint venture with Startup Farm, Futurecom, the major technology event in Latin America, will hold, in São Paulo, from october 13th do 16th, the second edition of its Startup Session. This year, with the intent to provide the market with new solutions, the Startup Session will select and evaluate 10 innovative projects, which will then be seen by an investor committee, that will elect the big winners.

During the next weeks, a team from Startup Farm, one of the leading startup accelerators in Latin America, will begin the pre-selection of 10 new businesses that fit the profile defined by the organizers: Mobile connectivity; Big Data & Analytics; Customer Experience; Security.

In 2013 FIT Networks was the winner with a low cost solution for delivering broad band web through optical fibers to the homes of final costumers. Runner up was UpPoints, that developed a system that uses cameras to monitor and analyze costumers habits inside supermarkets. In third place was AceitaFone, developer of payment solutions in mobile apps.

Alan Leite, Startup Farm´s CEO, says the contest is a great opportunity for the new businesses to show their projects and meet key people in the market. “Brazil is developing a vibrating entrepreneurial atmosphere, that is drawing attention from all over the world. The Startup Session is part of this movement, which can benefit Brazil´s economy.”

Provisuale´s president Laudálio Veiga Filho, organizer of Futurecom, hails the fact that Brazil has become in recent years a prolific birthplace for new ideas, so it is a natural step to motivate entrepreneurship and, thus, contribute to enhance the IT market in Brazil. “Moreover, for new businesses, it is an important key to sucess the fact of being taken care of by consolidated investors”, says Laudálio.

During Futurecom 2014, the selected startups will be able to present their business plans to multinational companies and have many opportunities for branding and networking.
