Entrepreneurship and Business Development: Startups Incubator

The Brazil International Foundation, in partnership with Research Park of Florida Atlantic University (FAU), aims to stimulate closer ties between Brazil and the United States, specifically between university incubators in both countries.

Similar to the State University of Londrina, FAU also has a technology-based business incubator, which is located in the Institution's Research Park. Previously, an approach was developed with the Fluminense Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in the areas of social sciences, politics and international relations. This partnership has already resulted in the exchange of teachers between institutions, academic research, and it was in this contact that we became aware of Aintec.
