After two years of anticipation and ongoing productive collaboration, the leadership of the National Confederation of Industry (CNI) of Brazil and leaders of the Brazilian industrial sector visited SOSA Tel Aviv.

Spearheading innovation
We've been fortunate to partner with CNI to work with principal organizations like Natura, Suzano, CMPC, Braskem, and Klabin on their innovation objectives while matching them with new technologies as we spearheaded pilot implementation programs together.

The week-long immersion event was about sitting down face to face, zoomless, to explore and learn about local opportunities and their global application.

The primary goal was to open people's minds, become educated on new visions and ideas, and bridge the gap between wants, needs, and challenges to solutions, progress, and eventually monetization. 

Touring groundbreaking initiatives
So, who did we meet during the week-long intense excursion? Glad you asked:

1. Prominent research institutions associated with a Nobel laureate and Turing awards winners learning about internal innovative processes and initiatives: The Weizmann Institute, The Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Kinneret Innovation Center, The Peres Center for Peace and Innovation, and The Hebrew University.

2. Innovative startups gaining traction in the cutting-edge discoveries and achievement of cultivated meat, automotive cybersecurity solutions, software solutions for industrial systems, and more: Augury, UBQ Materials, SeeTree, Aleph Farms, Afimilk, among others.

3. Israel's leading hospital, Sheba Medical Center, rated 10th in the world, fostering open innovation in the digital health sector.

4. Trailblazing entities such as Israel Aerospace Industries - an aerospace and aviation manufacturer, and Israel Innovation Authority, responsible for Israel's innovation policy. 

"A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality."
- John Lennon

Cliche as it may sound, even from a visionary like John Lennon, our vision with CNI is currently materializing from introductions to partnerships to creativity, innovation, and realization.

“Working with SOSA hand-in-hand to foster growth, new ideas, and create new opportunities for Brazil’s most notable enterprises has transformed our approach to innovation and seamlessly created a path to solutions they wouldn’t have discovered otherwise” 
Gianna Sagazio, Innovation Director at CNI &  Executive Coordinator of the Open Innovation Partnership with SOSA

We can't wait to see what the next steps will bring. This is only the beginning.
