Enabling Partner Growth and Success
The reason FloripaTech exists is because of the generous cooperation of our partners and the participation of other organizations that support the entrepreneurial community in Floripa through programs and assistance.
Local organizations have embraced the idea of attracting more international investment and have opened their arms to us by granting access to their facilities, programs, staff, business processes and most importantly to their entrepreneurs, which provide a shining example that innovation is thriving in (Florianopolis) Floripa and the south of Brazil.
