On December 8th, at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will take place the local version of the event known as Shell Livewire: Inciativa Jovem Business Fair. This business oriented event will select different projects that, at a later stage, will receive access to consulting rounds.
The theme for this event is "The global businessman".. Sally Buberman, co-founder of Wormhole and former participant of Desafió Joven (Livewire in Argentina) will be a special guest at a debate to be held during this business fair.
This event is a great opportunity for entrepeneurs to present their business ideas and see the reaction of the public. Also they have the possibility for networking and establishing commercial alliances that very same day.
Yet that is not all, there will also be awards: The top 8 most innovative and viable ideas will receive cash prices to get their business started. Also, this year, the organizers have announced that other five business projects will also receive awards.
The team from Iniciativa Jovem celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of the Livewire program and will review stories of entrepeneurs from different countries who, thanks to this initiative, were able to get their projects started and develop viable businesses.
