FGV encourages student entrepreneurship

27 June 2013

An important portion of the young people who start today a small business in Brazil has come from institutions encouraging entrepreneurship as a fixed discipline in the academic program. As an example, Fundação Getulio Vargas has been introducing the topic and encouraging its students to create start-ups - which is a very common strategy among North-American and European schools.

According to the projects coordinator of the Center for Entrepreneurship and New Business at FGV (GVCenn), Renê Rodrigues, in an interview with Estadão newspaper, entrepreneurship has become a source of inspiration to students abroad around the 70s and 80s, with the emergence of those names that came from the Silicon Valley. But this only arrived in Brazil in 2000.

Renê also emphasizes that most of the graduates at FGV moves toward creating a new company. FGV students graduate already engaged or about to engage in approximately two years of entrepreneurship. The main schools realized they should leave behind training people for high management positions, and train people who will create new jobs, the professor says.
