Coventry University | University goes global
One of our Members, Coventry University, has been featured in ENRICH in Brazil's January newsletter as an example of their support given to startups and entrepreneurs looking for business and opportunities in Brazil.
Chiara Davalli, Senior Project Leader at EBN, has interviewed Erika Azevedo, a business development consultant at Coventry University, Coventry, United Kingdom.
Ms Azevedo has a long history working for organisations with a focus on Brazil. Before joining Coventry University, she spent 18 years working as a Sector Manager for Advanced Engineering at the British Consulate General in São Paulo (Brazil). Her role was to support trade and investment between Brazilian and British companies by delivering market research, trade missions, trade shows, conferences and account management.
During this period, Ms Azevedo established a solid network in the business community and the public sector, identifying and promoting business co-operation between Brazil and the UK. She has an interest in Corporate Social Responsibility and was responsible for a partnership between Brazilian and British NGOs focused on the Olympic Legacy. In 2016, she joined Coventry University as a Business Development Consultant for Latin America.
Coventry University is focused on developing links with industry, business & academia in Brazil as well as with key strategic stakeholders to help support these areas’ long-term development. Its priority sectors are: engineering, automotive, aerospace, health and life sciences and business and law. Coventry in Brazil has initiated activities in November 2016 and it is also a hub for Latin America. At the beginning the focus was on engineering sector, however, Coventry has also identified the sectors above as high potential as well.
