UP, in order to create a system that encourages the development of new business and social initiatives, intends to enable collaborative processes with organizations, associations, foundations, companies, universities, schools of high training, research centers, informal investors, professional traders and public bodies.
UP UP is interested in developing agreements and partnerships in order to identify, promote and support high potential and worthy projects to enable them to be financed and successfully implemented.
