Young entrepreneurs and participants in the Afro-entrepreneurship program Igualando Oportunidades, Hulda Rode, Guilherme Vicente de Moraes and Yuri Assini, were present at the 6th edition of Campus Party Brasília (CPBSB6), held at Mané Garrincha, which brought together thousands of technology and innovation enthusiasts and creativity. This year, the event was themed To infinity and beyond (To infinity and beyond, translated into Portuguese), linked to astronomy, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Brasília Luiz Cruls Planetarium.

The young entrepreneurs’ startups, Escreva and Ex Devedor, caught the public’s attention. For Hulda, writer and co-founder of the Escreva platform, which connects new authors to the publishing market, highlighted the importance of Campus Party as a showcase for her company.
