Entrepreneurship is in fashion. The word entrepreneurship has never been heard so much. The entrepreneurial vocation of Brazilians has never been so visible and, in times of crisis, it becomes even more evident. In 2020, Brazil reached the highest level of initial entrepreneurs in the last 20 years, with approximately 25% of the adult population involved in opening a new business or with a business with up to 3.5 years of activity. As a result, we saw the number of startups grow, as early as 2020 Brazil had more than 12,700 startups, according to the Brazilian Association of Startups (Abstartups) — a 27% growth compared to 2018, when there were 10,000 companies. And 20 times more than in 2011.
In addition, Brazilian startups raised US$ 3.2 billion in investment by the end of May 2021. The value represents 90% of the total invested in 2020. In all, there were 261 deals closed this year, a volume 293% greater than the same period last year.
