Four of the crowdworking spaces launched in Brazil by Telefónica Open Future_, together with universities and technology parks, have opened incubation calls aimed at technology-based startups. These spaces offer up to 66 seats to those startups that want to present themselves and whose innovative projects are oriented to areas such as IoT, Digital Solutions in Telecommunications, Agrotech, Big Data, IA, E2E (End to End), Smart Cities, and Cloud. Registrations must be submitted before June 5 on the Telefónica Open Future_ platform.

The crowdworking spaces that are part of this national call are the Crowd Facens Sorocaba, which is in the Facens Entrepreneurship Center (Faculty of Engineering of Sorocaba) and has 15 seats; Crowd Londrina, located at the State University of Londrina next to Sebrae-Paraná, which will select 20 startups; Crowd Rio, in association with the Technological Park of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, which offers 16 places; and the Crowd Vale da Electrônica, located at the National Telecommunications Institute of Santa Rita do Sapucaí, together with Ericsson, which holds 15 places.

Each of these spaces offers different benefits described in the Telefónica Open Future_ platform, although all of them have technical support and trained mentors to guide the participants in the development of their projects; workshops, participation in events, as well as access to investors and the market. Once the incubation process has been completed, the entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to access Wayra, which invests in high-impact startups and the open access door of Vivo's open innovation.

"The Crowds are spaces dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs who have innovative projects that are still in the embryonic phase, but that can grow and offer relevant solutions to society. Together with our partners we achieve greater scope and the possibility of finding the innovative solutions we are looking for, as well as contributing to the strengthening of the local ecosystem," says Renato Valente, Director of Telefónica Open Future_ in Brazil.
