The global challenge of logistics, each day, has been finding examples in society of solutions that transform peoples’ lives. In that scenario, Fuse, an acceleration program of ideas, is giving room for you to become an agent of this transformation. Receiving support from Rumo, the largest railroad operator in Latin America, Fuse is looking for innovative solutions in railroad safety, the company’s primary value.
Two innovative solutions for:
Railroad collisions (between trains and vehicles)
Railroad run overs
R$200k of equity-free investment, for developing your prototype approved on the idealization phase.
Hards is the 1st software + hardware Accelerator in Brasil, and will be our partner until the conclusion of Fuse.
In partnership with the Industrial Institute (SENAIS-SC / FIESC) and PRODUZA, Hards will grant access to a lab for prototyping and developing hardwares, supporting your idea.
We have built a team with the greatest managers and specialists in Railroad from Brazil, as well as the best mentors with years of experience in the software and hardware industry.
Your idea can solve worldwide problems of railroad safety and can also become a business. You won’t miss that chance, will you?
This is the phase where you submit your ideas. On 07/17, 10 ideas for each problem will be selected and announced to move on to the next phase.
On this phase, all 20 selected ideas on previous phase (10 for each problem) will receive technical mentoring about the problems at hand and will be able to make alterations to the scope of their ideas. On July 23rd, 5 solutions will be announced to move to the next phase.
In this phase, the teams will development and create prototypes of the ideas approved during the immersion. In this phase two events will occur: in person immersion (09/09 à 09/12) and the Demoday (09/12), where the participants will be invited to visit Rumo’s headquarters, in Curitiba/PR Brazil, and 4 ideas will be chosen to sign a contract of R$200k to build and test their protypes and to be accelerated by Hards.
During the Acceleration phase, all teams will develop their prototypes and will receive assistance and mentoring in developing their businesses. In this phase all the infrastructure of Hards lab will be at your disposal, located in Florianópolis/SC, Brazil.
In December, all four finalists will graduate and receive their certificate of completion of the acceleration program in na event in Curitiba/PR Brazil.
