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".
I am just a humble guy who has been working since I was 16 years old and managed to have the opportunity to be an business man, a micro-businessman and now as an entrepreneur I am outraged to realize how MYPE is treated and the sartup context, with all the GDP (PBI) and jobs that contribute.
Sorry for my english.
