São Paulo, May 2020 – Eurofarma, the Brazilian multinational pharmaceutical company that most heavily invests in innovation through its Eurofarma Synapsis acceleration program, announces the 16 companies selected for the B2B Scale-up, led by Endeavor, a global organization to support entrepreneurs. The pharmaceutical company is one of the Gold sponsors of the project.

Registration for the program included over 300 companies from several different fields. From now on, the selected companies will undergo a series of collective and individual mentoring sessions, with the best names in the market of the Endeavor network and its key sponsors, including Eurofarma. The pharmaceutical company’s relationship network, for example, includes more than 4,000 suppliers, 1,500 active customers (B2B) and over 600,000 medical contacts per month, encompassing all specialties, for startups focused on the health sector.

“It is gratifying to see the sheer amount of companies interested in the Synapsis program across the country. We are proud to be the leading pharmaceutical company in terms of innovation investments in Brazil, also supporting scientists and entrepreneurs. We want to bring the national industry closer to disruptive innovation,” explains Helton Carvalho, director of Entrepreneurship and Digital at the pharmaceutical company.

“Endeavor selected 16 companies that we believe to be the best in the B2B sector. These businesses combine strong execution and good product, in addition to having clear growth indicators that highlight them as major future players in the segment. Our role is to accelerate this growth, minimizing the main challenges,” says Victor Xavier, Endeavor’s acceleration manager. “Our sponsors play an essential role in the program, validating whether, in fact, the pains that the selected companies are looking to resolve in the market are also valid within major corporations, that is, helping to legitimize whether the product market fit of scale-ups is aligned with what the market needs”, he adds.
