13 June, at one of London Science Museum’s most modern event spaces, Brazilian scale-up PlataformaVerde won the 2019 Latam Edge Award, after being evaluated against three other finalists from Brazil and one from Chile.
After going through two selection processes and being evaluated by experts in innovation from Latin America and the United Kingdom, PlataformaVerde was awarded the prize of one year in complementary services from companies such as Deloitte, GrupoCASAUK and Brazil (PR), Eydos Digital (Marketing Digital), Sapovalova Coaching and Fieldfisher (law).
The company will also receive support in opening a business and banking account via SGS Partners and an office space at WeWork Labs with two positions completely free of charge. Without the award, the total cost of these services for PlataformaVerde would amount to approximately £125.000.
“With this award we will dare to be global”, said Chicko Souza, CEO of PlataformaVerde, already thinking about the many new developments he will be working on in the United Kingdom in order to grow his company. “We competed against incredible ideas, and I didn’t think we were going to win,” he concluded, adding that he really benefited from the coaching process ahead of the award, which allowed him to fine-tune his three-minute long presentation.
