The Startups Connected initiative was created by the German-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in 2016, with the aim of promoting the rapprochement between its associated companies and startups in Brazil and Germany, as well as between the startups ecosystem of both countries.

The core proposal of the program is to bring companies and startups together to work in a pilot-project, while the German-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce and its partners offer many benefits to support this process.

For startups:

To develop their business by connecting to corporations.

For corporations:

To innovate by connecting to startups.

For investors:

To invest in startups supported by an acceleration program, and adherent to corporate challenges.

German startups can join Startups Connected, by submitting their idea to the Sustainable Brazil category:

The 21st century imposes new demands on the world, as shown by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stablished by the UN. The SDGs form a global agenda adopted during a United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2015. Within 17 goals, there are 169 marks to be reached by 2030. This agenda proposes global actions in the areas of poverty eradication, food security, agriculture, health, education, gender equality, social inequality reduction, energy, water and sanitation, sustainable patterns of production and consumption, climate change, sustainable cities, protection and sustainable use of oceans and terrestrial ecosystems, inclusive economic growth, infrastructure, industrialization, among others.
