I am an admirer of good and promising ideas. I have experience working on the “Programa Sinapse da Inovação”- one of the largest programs to encourage innovative entrepreneurship that offers financial resources, training and support to transform innovative ideas into successful business!

Over the years I have received more than 5,000 ideas from students, researchers, professors and professionals from different knowledge and economic sectors of the Santa Catarina, Espírito Santo and Amazonas editions.

I am a researcher at the CEI – Innovative Entrepreneurship Center of the CERTI Foundation, and I also integrate the team of “InovAtiva Brasil” – the largest Startups Acceleration program in Latin America, acting as Project Evaluator, operation and organization of Acceleration Cycle events. I have a degree in business administration from UFSC – Federal University of Santa Catarina and I’m studying MBA in business management and innovation.
