Criado em 1972, o SEBRAE (Serviço Brasileiro de Apoio às Micro e Pequenas Empresas), oferece apoio e capacitação a empresas e pessoas que tem boas ideias, mas nem sempre tem conhecimentos operacionais e técnicos.
Some units offer this type of aid to projects related to music and culture, such as the SEBRAE MGwhich for more than a decade stands out by offering a precise training program for independent musicians that has already qualified more than 150 artistic careers. In this project, SEBRAE develops the entrepreneurial side of musicians, dealing with all the management issues of this career with strategic planning, goal, business plan, always remembering that it is a creative and cultural business
As it has happened in recent years, SEBRAE will participate in SIM São Paulo promoting the protagonism of artists from Minas Gerais in an action that will have 6 artists from that state. "For SEBRAE-MG it is very important to be, once again, at the SIM São Paulo. This action goes beyond the participation in an event, we are talking about learning, networking, trends and opportunities! And yet, it's a great opportunity to show the work of the artists from Minas Gerais and the participation of SEBRAE-MG in raising awareness of the importance of taking entrepreneurship and management to culture. This year we will participate in the networking cocktail and the guide to the market with the goal of being a more assertive and productive participation!" says Raquel Vilarino Reis, manager of the cultural project of BH from SEBRAE-MG.
