PPA Acceleration Program

New development models for the Amazon


The 'PPA Acceleration Program', launched in 2018, had 3 editions, accelerated 30 Amazon businesses, invested in 12 of them and was considered the best acceleration program in the Northern Region of Brazil. It was coordinated by the Idesam and had the strategic and financial support of USAID and the partners Bioversity/CIAT Alliance, the Humanize Institute and Vale Fund.

After just over two years accelerating and investing in impactful businesses in the Amazon, the Program has evolved into an independent impact accelerator, the AMAZ.


THE PPA Acceleration and Impact Investment Program 2020 Impact Report brings a picture of the acceleration journey that year, which had to transform itself to serve the business and took place through virtual meetings and strategies to promote strengthening and resilience to entrepreneurs.
