Annually, the iNO.VC Trophy, an annual award promoted by the ArcelorMittal iNO.VC Program, recognizes the most outstanding startups in the Brazilian entrepreneurial ecosystem. This trophy seeks to honor innovative companies that are driving significant advances in their respective areas of activity.
Created by ArcelorMittal, largest steel producer in the world, the iNO.VC Program’s main objective is to encourage entrepreneurship and innovation, boosting the development of businesses with great growth potential. This is already the third edition of the event, whose focus is to honor and recognize those who stand out in the digital innovation ecosystem, both in Espírito Santo and Santa Catarina – known as the silicon valley of Brazil.
The award initiative came from iNO.VC, a digital transformation program for the Flat Steel segment of ArcelorMittal. It was created with the aim of connecting startups, companies, and partners to ArcelorMittal’s business challenges and opportunities. iNO.VC seeks to encourage creativity and co-creation, seeking to enable innovative solutions for the industry that have a positive impact on society. All this, collaboratively.
The recognition of BIX as Startup of the Year is an achievement that fills us with gratitude and pride. This recognition coming from such a giant and important company as ArcelorMittal reinforces the confidence that our customers and partners place in our work, in addition to encouraging us to continue innovating and exceeding expectations.
“We know how challenging it is to innovate, and having this type of recognition motivates us to continue in this quest for innovation with our partners. It’s really cool to see this incentive to the innovation ecosystem that ArcelorMittal is providing through the iNO.VC Trophy. We feel extremely honored to be a part of this and to have this recognition from the program.”
