After a little over two years of acceleration and investment in impact businesses in the Legal Amazon, the Acceleration Program of the Platform Partners for the Amazon (PPA) has evolved and transformed into the AMAZ Impact Accelerator, which was created with the mission of supporting entrepreneurs and businesses to overcome the challenges and peculiarities of the ecosystem in the region. The objective is ambitious: to help build a new economy for the Amazon, supporting local entrepreneurs with capital, knowledge and connections. In 2021, the first business call took place to select the accelerated entrepreneurs for its first group. A total of 156 registrations came from 19 states and also from the Federal District, in deals totaling R$ 32 million in annual sales. Learn more here: https://amaz.org.br/
