Brazil (São Paulo)
To give it its full – if unwieldy – title, the Núcleo de Empreendedorismo da USP (Entrepreneurship Nucleus of the University of São Paulo) is a non-profit organisation made up of professors, students and researchers aimed at fomenting an entrepreneurial culture in Latin America’s largest university. Focusing on three main areas – inspiration, development and connection – the NEU team invites speakers to encourage and enlighten undergraduates and graduate students. One recent visitor was Tallis Gomes, founder of Easy Taxi – the largest Brazilian startup, now in 30 countries.
The development aspect is defined as a “pre-acceleration program for aspiring entrepreneurs, which transforms crude ideas into solid early-stage startups”: every student with an idea receives mentorship and information references. For the connection angle, NEU has acted as a hub to allow students to meet entrepreneurs, up-and-running startups and leaders of major Brazilian companies.
Chris has been writing on travel, tech, sex, food, art and books for nearly two decades. He co-founded street paper Hecho en Buenos Aires, writes regularly for the Guardian and Telegraph newspapers, and is now writing a thriller set in Andalusia.
