Competitive Fortaleza Program
The Competitive Fortaleza Program is an urban planning tool supporting the emergence and growth of local businesses. The project aims to create a favorable environment for investors and citizens of Fortaleza to overcome the challenges of maintaining and opening new endeavors. The Program also strives to meet the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established by the United Nations.
The Program acts within four complementary lines: incentives and regulations, public-private arrangements, de-bureaucratization, and labor marketplace. Its premise is to provide an institutional framework encouraging entrepreneurship in the city.
The Program builds a vibrant urban economy with the goal to provide the necessary tools to improve opportunities in Fortaleza. So far, it favors more than 34,000 workers and approximately 19,000 micro-entrepreneurs.
