Academic Working Capital

Entrepreneurial education program that supports students who want to turn their Final Projects (TCC) into a technology-based company

Proposal

The creation of new companies is a key element for the generation of work and income and, therefore, for the growth of a nation. After graduation, Brazilian students go looking for a job. Few choose to start a business as a career alternative. In addition, most incentive programs for starting innovative companies focus on already organized skilled workers. There is a gap between the university and the establishment of a company that is not covered by these programs.
