The purpose of Arjuna and "the compass" is give to the MYPE of Latam a step by step process to their for transform their business to the twenty one century with metodologies like design sprint and inbound and tools like canva, HubSpot, Mural, Drive and more (al methodologies and tools existing, now together)...this purpose generated in context of foment and support only startups, because the support is centered in young people naturally digital...and aware

In Latam the problems are diferents and we consider need transform MYPEs for have more "potencial startups".

Sorry for my english.
