Since its founding, one of the principles of the Brazilian Association of Public Held Companies (Associação Brasileira das Companhias Abertas), or ABRASCA, has been to pursue greater efficiency, modernization and productivity in the Brazilian economy through democratizing capital. Publicly held companies have democratized their capital, courting shareholders from among the investing public. The great involvement with the capital markets demands perfecting and developing management, especially with respect to the commitment to transparency, fairness and accountability. The initiative toward regulation by the publicly held companies themselves reinforces the commitment of member companies to make the ABRASCA’s objectives a reality.
Associação Brasileira das Entidades dos Mercados Financeiro e de Capitais represents institutions with business and activities in Brazil´s financial and capital markets. The association represents more than 340 institutions, amongst commercial banks, multiple and investment banks, asset managers, brokerage houses as well as investment consultants.

Brazilian Institute of International Relations – IBRI – The IBRI (Instituto Brasileiro de Relações Internacionais) is a non-profit association with cultural finalities, which has the mission of promoting the debate over contemporary international relations and the challenges of Brazilian international insertion. Founded in 1954, in Rio de Janeiro, and having operated in that city for nearly forty years, the institute has been restructured and reconstituted in Brasília since 1993. The institute has, from its origins, played an important role in the discussion of international relations and Brazilian foreign policy themes. IBRI operates in collaboration with cultural and academic institutions, Brazilian and foreign, by encouraging the undertaking of research studies, organizing discussion forums, promoting activities for the greater public (conferences, seminars and courses). IBRI also publishes, since 1958, the Brazilian Journal of International Politics (Revista Brasileira de Política Internacional), which has been a witness – and many times preferential agent – to intellectual and political movements that have renovated Brazil’s international actions, and has played an relevant role in the academic and political culture of the country. IBRI publishes also Bulletin Meridiano 47. Together with IBRI, iREL has been promoting many national and international events, such as seminars, lectures and conferences.
Established in 1987, Anprotec - Brazilian Association of Science Parks and Business Incubators has approximately 280 members, including business incubators, science parks, education and research institutions, government bodies and other entities focused on entrepreneurship and innovation. As the leader of the movement in Brazil, the Association operates through training activities and the articulation of public policies as well as the generation and propagation of knowledge.
Anprotec’s trajectory is directly linked to the development of Brazilian business incubators and science parks. The implementation of these environments in different regions has spread the idea of innovative entrepreneurship throughout the country, resulting in the consolidation of one of the world’s largest science park and business incubator systems. Currently, Brazil has 400 business incubators and approximately 30 science parks.
The success of these mechanisms for supporting innovation has marked the trajectory and evolution of Anprotec and has made a substantial contribution to consolidating a strong and competitive knowledge-based industry. Confident in the work of the institutions it represents, Anprotec, together with the various partners involved in each of its initiatives, continues to do everything possible to ensure that innovative entrepreneurship makes a decisive contribution to Brazil’s sustainable development.
