How it works
You can apply for your startup to participate in the Startup Brasil Program with 21212. In order to do this, click on the APPLY NOW button below and follow the instructions.
For the Startup Brasil program, 21212 is looking specifically for digital startups who have a launched product with a significant customer base and generated revenue (level 2).
If your startup is in a stage before level one, you can still apply for 21212. We will be selecting companies which we will work with and prepare for the next Startup Brasil selection round in the second semester of 2013. If you apply now it will increase your chances of selection in the second round.
