Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
I’ve started work in Aliança in 2009 as a temporary trainee. In 2011 I’ve started work as communication assistant, but at that time the communication area was not structured. So I structured that area and was elected Director of area.
As Director, I’m responsible for all the institutional communication and made all the new brand project, to increase our logo and brand at all.To communicate with the law-income entrepreneurs, I’ve also started a business unity named: “Awareness to the cause” that I’m responsible, and coordinate all the Awards Projects to highlight low-income microentrepreneurs stories, that the regular media do not expose. So I’ve coordinate 5 projects(1º and 2º Aliança National Award, Little Giants – Award for women entrepreneurs in São Paulo, Time to Bright (with Brilhante to women in Brazil, and with Serasa Experian to help microentreprenuers with financial). Since 2011 and now this unity is very important to support our work in other units. And then I’ve started Tamo Junto.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I’m always looking for meet new people that could help me, Tamo Junto and Aliança. To marketing, I’ve always in contact with Ludmilla Rossi, parter of MKT VIRTUAL, a company specialized in digital marketing. To brand learning, I’m in contact with Valquiria Porto – owner of a Brand Consultancy, Zeuner Fraissat, Daniel Codato and Maria Pia Parente also helps me with the new brand of ALiança. I’m also exchange ways to combined Tamo Junto with Bliive.com with Lorrana Scarpioni, a young entrepreneur from my college, that now is one of most influential Brazilian woman at a BBC list. As Director, Tamo Junto entrepreneur and Manager of the business unity, I’m also in frequent contact with our financial partners and midia, like: Serasa Experian, Brilhante, Itaipu, CAF development BANK and the journalists from PEGN – the most influential magazine to small and microbusiness and Brazil. In September 2014, the CEO of ALiança could not attend at Ashoka Globalizer event in London, and I went in her place. I was able to present Aliança to the consultants and other social entrepreneurs. I had the opportunity to improve my internacional network and now we are close to start a projet with an organization in Spain, as a result of my work in London.
