HISTORY

Fumsoft has developed initiatives to support entrepreneurship since its founding. In 1996, the institution created the Incubadora de Empresas de Base Tecnológica em Informática de Belo Horizonte (Business Incubator Based Technology in Computer Science of Belo Horizonte), in partnership with the Associação das Empresas Brasileiras de Tecnologia da Informação do Estado de Minas Gerais (Assespro-MG) (Association of Brazilian Companies for Information Technology of the State of Minas Gerais (MG-Assespro), Banco de Desenvolvimento de Minas Gerais (BDMG) (Development Bank of Minas Gerais (BDMG), Prodabel, Governo de Minas  (Government of Minas Gerais), Prefeitura de Belo Horizonte (Belo Horizonte City Hall), Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG) (Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG)), PUC Minas, Euvaldo Lodi Institute (IEL) and Sebrae-MG.

Fumsoft was awarded as the Best Business Incubator of Minas Gerais (Sebrae) and Brazil (Anprotec), and today Fumsoft is a reference for best practices in business support for various similar programs in the country. Today, Fumsoft has evolved from concepts inspired by the latest market movements and has begun to develop accelerator programs for startups, adopting the most appropriate strategies to support enterprises in the IT sector.

 

PRIME

In 2009, Fumsoft was chosen by the Financiadora de Estudos e Projetos (Finep) do Ministério da Ciência (Funder of Studies and Projects (FINEP) of the Ministry of Science), Tecnologia e Inovação (MCTI) (Technology and Innovation (MCTI)) to operate the Programa Primeira Empresa Inovadora (Prime) (First Innovative Enterprise Program). From this, the institution selected 117 new companies and allocated to each  R$ 120,000 in non-reimbursable funds, totaling approximately R$ 14 million. The project goal was to create favorable financial conditions for these startups to successfully address the major challenges of the early stages of growth. The results show that Prime has achieved this goal, generating several innovative companies, which now have a stronger foundation to succeed in the market.
