The journey of accelerating the six businesses selected in 2021 to compose their portfolio and receive investment starts now.
During the month of January, the AMAZ team worked with entrepreneurs to diagnose their needs to grow and reach scale, and based on this diagnosis, the acceleration strategy was drawn up.
There are common demands and also very particular needs, and one of the great challenges is precisely to offer startups a journey of learning and joint construction, associated with customized advice and mentoring to overcome each one's growth challenges.
The acceleration journey offered by AMAZ has the differential of offering 'à la carte' solutions, customized to actually meet the needs of entrepreneurs working in the Amazon region.
In this way, the design of the program varies according to each selected group, seeking to work directly on the issues diagnosed as fundamental for the growth of each business.
“One of AMAZ's biggest differentiators is designing the acceleration to meet the real demands of the business instead of offering ready-made packages. The team works in partnership with entrepreneurs and enhances the exchange of experiences and connections between them, adding value and seeking innovative solutions to the group's pain”, says Mariano Cenamo, CEO of AMAZ.
Face-to-face meetings and advisory services begin in the coming months
The acceleration journey proposed by AMAZ includes two face-to-face workshops, prepared with great care and in accordance with the health situation brought about by covid-19. The first one takes place in March.
Until then, entrepreneurs continue to work with the AMAZ team on individual and preparatory issues for the first face-to-face workshop. The second workshop is initially planned for the month of May.
The monitoring of AMAZ specialists will be constant, in a partnership that aims to boost the business and help it to grow.
“Our team is already working with these businesses in a personalized way, we will support them in the refinement of the strategic plan, action plan and theory of change in this first stage. During the entire journey, our specialists and partners will have the mission of generating value, supporting management and opening paths for the startups supported, seeking to leverage their results and positive impacts on the conservation of the Amazon”, analyzes Ana Carolina Bastida, responsible for investment management and acceleration at AMAZ.
