Abstartups is the focus of our content today, but first we need to understand the essence of the term Startup.

This article is organized to provide conceptual information as well as pertinent data to audiences seeking Technology & Business content.

What is a startup?

Startup is a type of company created in a simplified business model, generally focused on technology with the objective of solving the pain of some sector, process or group of people.

A startup is usually composed of a small number of people who, even being from different areas and specialties, come together with the same purpose of solving a pain through technology (AI – Artificial Intelligence).

The term Startup is recent. The last 15 years, marked by the technological explosion driven by social media, have opened space for the creation of new companies based on SaaS (Software as a Service).

The challenges faced by everyone

Like all initiatives and innovative ideas, they all end up at one time or another facing the challenges of evolution, especially in Brazil, a territory full of obstacles for those who want to undertake.

In view of this, initiatives were created in all countries to boost this new business model, initiatives of a governmental or private nature.

In Brazil, we had the rise of ABS, which through the identification of patterns of pain that were repeated among Brazilian startups, decided to create the Association that today brings growth to thousands of Startups spread across the country.

What is Abstartups?

Abstartups is the acronym adapted for Associação Brasileira de Startups, created in 2011 with the aim of boosting Brazilian startups.

The association emerged from the desire of several entrepreneurs who, realizing the lack of visibility of new technology players in Brazil, decided to create fronts for boosting, training and networking training in order to promote the evolution of these new companies.

What is the scenario of startups in Brazil and in the world according to Abstartups’ vision?

The association presents as justification for its mission, the great impact that startups have on job creation and economic growth in the country and in the world.

The research presented by ABS shows that in 60 countries , more than 800,000 adults were interviewed about topics related to the professional world.

The data was alarming, as it was found that only 4% of these 800,000 people were entrepreneurs, and that even being a relatively small number, these people were responsible for 38% of new jobs created .

Migrating to Brazilian data, Startup entrepreneurship (scale-ups) is responsible for 50% of new jobs .

The vision originated in this statistical diagnosis shows that the more active Startups with a drive for growth, the more job and income generation can be fostered.

Faced with the reality that every 4 startups, 1 survives the first 5 years , the Association ‘s objective is to be a “propelling spring” for the evolution of this new business, so that this numerical scenario changes, and so more startups can win. the famous period of survival .
