Basic requirements

There are no prerequisites for company registration, such as volume and invoices.

According to Brasil, the organization seeks to know the business model of the interested company, whether it is hybrid or 100% remote, and the sector in which it operates.

“We want to reach a variety of companies, including those outside the Rio-SP hub and the main requirement is interest in participating. When registering, we will note this and what the company wants to achieve from the tests, ”he says.

Regarding the size of the participating companies, the projections are between 30 and 40 participants in Brazil.

As a comparative effect, in the UK, where 92% of respondents decided to keep the shorter business model, 61 companies took the tests. In South Africa and Canada, about 30 companies. In the United States, about 40 companies participated in the project.

During the testing period, the studies will be conducted under the leadership of Boston College, which will monitor the development of the project. Our pilots last about 6 months. The CEO explained that we will have data on the Brazilian experience in April 2024.
