The Ranking 100 Open Startups 2020 is coming!

How about being part of a list used as a reference by major institutions and leading investors to accompany the most attractive startups for the corporate market and the companies most engaged with the innovation ecosystem?

We are talking about the Ranking 100 Open Startups, an annual publication that, in 2020, reaches its fifth edition!

But what does “the most attractive startups for the corporate market” mean?

The answer to this question goes through the Ranking methodology itself, which considers the score of each startup according to the business relationships established with large companies in the last 12 months. To count points, these relationships must be validated by the executive responsible for the contract, which guarantees the reliability of the results.

Who validates is the market

The objective criteria and the validation made by the executives themselves place the Ranking 100 Open Startups as the main market reference for open innovation. This means that being part of the Ranking is a great differential, which provides visibility in the ecosystem and enhances business opportunities.

In addition to the Top 100, the Ranking 100 Open Startups also has specific categories, related to the startup sector, ranking of companies that most signed contracts with startups, ecosystem agents that most had ranked startups, among others.

The official award ceremony takes place at Whow! Innovation Festival, to be held on July 21, 22 and 23, 2020. For more information about the event, visit: festival.whow.com.br
