ESPM to Host Week-Long Intensive Startup Creation Course Next Month

The ESPM Center of Innovation and Creation in São Paulo has an exciting opportunity in store for local entrepreneurs next month: The Startup Creation Lab (Laboratório de Criação de Startups).

Lasting from February 25th to March 2nd, the week-long intensive course will cover a wide range of content related to building a business. Students will learn about emerging concepts and megatrends, entrepreneurial tools, the processes of prototyping and hypothesis validation, and strategies for telling their startups’ stories. They will also get insight into Brazil’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and, at the end of the week, be given the opportunity to pitch ideas to and network with local executives and investors.

To accommodate students working full-time during the day, classes will be held in the evening starting at 6:30 p.m. each day (with the exception of Saturday the 2nd).

The lab is organized and headed by Marcelo Pimenta, Brazilian internet pioneer who now leads research efforts at Laboratorium. He will lead course sessions, along with Diego Remus of Startupi and Renato Nobre of BMGen Brasil.

Inscriptions will remain open until February 15th. To reserve your spot, visit
