Gerdau S A : 6 Eco-friendly and Diversity Led Startups Chosen for Gerdau's Acceleration Program

09/16/2021 | 08:06am EST

Gerdau announces the latest nominees for Smart and Sustainable Startups

After much anticipation, Gerdau, one of the leading producers of long steel in the Americas and of special steel in the world, has announced its latest cohort for its Sales Acceleration Program in North America. The program supports startups in increasing revenue, exploring new countries, and potentially getting additional funding.

Out of the almost 100 companies that applied in July, six high-growth startups were selected. Local to global, all startups have sustainability as first priority goals - reducing carbon footprint, energy consumption, optimizing resources and reducing/managing waste. Applicants will gain targeted introductions to Gerdau’s global suppliers and customers, have the opportunity to create joint ventures and expand to new geographies.

Today, an increasing number of companies worldwide are looking at technologies and innovation to integrate sustainability and develop a more impactful change that’s good for business, society, and the planet. The time is now for collaboration, to partner and to transform our economy into a more sustainable future.

“Gerdau is looking for startups to add to our ecosystem of sustainable partners, help them grow and explore new potential business ventures,” said Fernanda Bordin, Innovation Sr. Manager. “We are confident that we’re on the right track and are looking forward to the next steps of this endeavour.”

On November 27th, the startups start their program, going through an intensive sales diagnosis, followed by weekly sales training and client introductions. Once the second phase starts, the startups will partner with Gerdau’s team from different countries to explore alternatives and build a business plan to take their company international.
