In the first 4 editions, we received registrations of about 200 businesses from companies located in 16 Brazilian states, covering the 5 geographic regions, demonstrating the plurality of the participating businesses and that the initiatives are not only in the big centers. Another point that draws attention, too, is that we have received Spin Off business registrations from major companies in the country”, comments Asp.
