The Luso-American Foundation for Development (FLAD) has opened the application phase for the next edition of the FLAD.EY BUZZ USA 2018 Award, an initiative of FLAD and EY, in association with Jornal de Negócios, which aims to promote and support the internationalization of micro, small and medium Portuguese companies to the United States of America.


The prize is intended for growing companies, and one of the main requirements for applications – until October 12, 2018 – is that they were established less than five years ago.


Candidate companies can operate in any sector of activity, preferably in the technological area. They must present proven experience and / or export strategy to the North American market. The jury – which is chaired by a FLAD member and composed of two Foundation guests, an EY member and an EY guest – will examine the applications with the aim of selecting the 10 companies with the highest potential, over which a report will be made to be published in Jornal de Negócios.



The award for the winning company consists of a four-week immersion program in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, or other location that is most appropriate depending on the type of company awarded. The objective is to provide a person of the winning company with a high level of understanding of the best practices of Sillicon Valey, or of another technological cluster, in terms of product and technological development.
