As home to the world’s eighth largest economy, the seventh biggest IT market, fifth largest number of mobile phone and internet users, and the third largest recipient of FDI in 2017, Brazil ranks among the UK Department for International Trade strategic markets.

It is a key country for any company interested in scaling up and expanding internationally. It has plenty to offer: a growing middle class, a voracious appetite for social and digital media, a population of over 210 million, and unprecedented levels of global investment coming from Europe, China, Japan, and the United States.

During this event, specialists in innovation, taxation, and scaleups that expanded to and from Brazil to the UK are going to discuss their learnings and update the audience about the new innovative scene in the country.

The Brazil Tech Award is an opportunity for European scaleups in seven categories – smart cities, fintech, health, entertainment, agritech, manufacturing and creative tech – to expand to a global emerging market. The winner will receive £70,000 in services during one year to establish its base in the city of Sao Paulo.
