Brazil Gateway connects Ohio and Brazil’s agritech businesses

An area of strategic focus for the Global Gateways, corporate engagement, involves working with Ohio-based businesses with international operations and in-region companies to develop relationships and engage with the university on executive education programs, career opportunities, trainings, educational activities and events.

As part of this focus, the Brazil Gateway visited Agrivalle, a biotechnology and agricultural company that is part of an investment fund of agritech and farmers. Located in Indaiatuba, São Paulo, Agrivalle has one of Brazil's largest gene banks of microorganisms for biological products. One of their main goals is related to the greenhouse effect, and they are looking to explore possibilities to evolve and expand on their work, which involves working with biotech firms in Ohio.
