What does Qintess Ignite Startups offer?

Business Partnership

O nosso objetivo é promover uma parceria estratégica de negócio – sem equity no primeiro momento - com a sua startup, podendo ser uma parceria de aceleração como fornecedor de áreas de negócios na complementação de portfólio ou criação de um novo produto; distribuição comercial e "go to market" conjuntos; e também para digitalização interna para ganhos de produtividade da própria Qintess.

Working Together in our Habitat

Through the duration of the program, we offer startups a highly modern, high tech and collaborative physical space in our new office, located at Rua Bela Cintra, in the city of São Paulo/Brazil and 400 5th Avenue, Floor 4, New York, NY/USA. You will have access to our entire global innovation ecosystem!

Acesso ao nosso mecanismo "Shadow" feito exclusivamente para o programa

Durante o programa, apoiaremos as startups no diagnóstico de suas soluções, indicando sugestões para o planejamento de um roadmap técnico e comercial, sempre que possível, com custos otimizados.

Mentoring and Coaching

Mentoring and coaching sessions will be promoted for selected startups through a monthly schedule of lectures, talks and mentoring with our teams and executives (who have extensive experience and global vision). Furthermore, startups will also have access to market mentors and monitored coaching.

Financial Investment

We will continually assess the traction of joint business results throughout the program’s duration. Even if the partnership does not start with an equity objective, we will evaluate the possibility of investing financially in your business, as if benefits both parties.

Finance & Marketing Advisory

Ajudar sua startup na captação de investimentos financeiros em nosso ecossistema de fundos de private equity e venture capital global.

Integração com Qintess Academy

Durante o programa, disponibilizaremos acesso ao nossos novos talentos da Qintess Academy. Isso faz parte do compromisso de capacitar e dar oportunidade para 2 mil profissionais em situação de vulnerabilidade em cinco anos, apoiando de maneira sustentável a evolução do produto de sua startup.
