RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
On June 24 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Oficialize (http://www.oficialize.com.br), an innovative business consultancy firm in Brazil, will reach significant exposure at an international startup event called Investor Day hosted by 21212, a Rio de Janeiro-based Digital Accelerator. The much anticipated event brings together 8 startups, 150 entrepreneurs, and over 200 investors from around the world to collaborate on some of the most exciting new business opportunities in Brazil to date. Past participants of Investor Day include the crowdfunding concert websites Queremos and the mobile payment processor Pagpop. Oficialize is part of a new wave of Brazilian internet startups that are changing the face of business in Brazil and around the world.
Oficialize has recently launched its online solution to help solve one of the most common and bureaucratic issues for Brazilian small businesses and entrepreneurs: opening a business in Brazil. Brazil is known as one of the most difficult countries in which to do business due to enormous amounts of bureaucracy involved in starting a new business, including heavy up-front processing costs and extended wait times. According to recent statistics, starting a new business in Brazil involves steps between 13 government agencies, costs of more than BR$1,750 and a timeline of over 120 days.
Oficialize’s purpose is to streamline this process by taking the logistics into their own hands on behalf of its clients, offering a fast, yet economical solution. Its on-page navigation and service is built with the end-user in mind. First, the client will visit Oficialize and sign-up for free, registering an email and password for access to the “Members Only” area. Next, the user specifies the business structure from Microempreendedor Individual (MEI), Sociedade Limitada (LTDA), or Sociedade Anónima. For clients that are not sure of which business structure is best for them, Oficialize’s blog contains resources to help users education themselves about their options. After choosing the business type, clients answer questions related to their company’s plan and its partners. Upon submission of this form, Oficialize management analyzes entries for errors.
The company’s short to medium-term vision is best explained by co-founder Luiz Rodriguiz, Director of Communications and Marketing: “Ate esse momento, estamos trabalhando exclusivamente com cidadãos Brasileiros, mas em pouco tempo nosso servico estaria disponivel para empreendedores atraves do mundo que gostariam de abrir uma pequena empresa.” (English: At this stage, we are serving only Brazilian citizens, but soon our service will be available for entrepreneurs from all over the world who want to start a small business in Brazil.”).
