Competitors:
Our main competitors are public institutions like universities and Embrapa (Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária). However, even though they can provide similar services like we do, this is not their main goal. And that's why those companies that we are already working with came to us after trying to have support from these institutions. Our group have the same qualification as the ones from these public institutions but with the difference that our focus is to give full support to our clients. In these public institutions, researchers have to do all sorts of other things, including attending part of this demand, which they cannot do well. Also, they have all sorts of problems with bureaucracy and patent conflicts.
International Strategy:
We don't have an international strategy yet. And even though we don't have one, the international clients are coming to us. We thing that if we have one we can improve it a lot.
