Braskem Labs

Got a project with an impact on the lives of people through plastics or chemistry?

Braskem Labs is a pioneering initiative in the Brazilian chemical and petrochemical industry, which encourages entrepreneurs to develop innovative environmental solutions using plastic and chemistry. The goal is to find new solutions and technologies in sectors such as healthcare, housing, mobility, security, etc., generating social impact.

The selected projects have access to training and support in the development of the business model, with an emphasis on promoting social impact and financial viability.

In the first edition, in 2015, 38 entrepreneurs were benefited, with 30 hours of training for entrepreneurs. At the end of the program, mentors and entrepreneurs responded to a satisfaction survey (NPS, Net Promoter Score) with only one question: “On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you indicate this experience for another person on your level?” The notes were 9.1 by mentors and by 10 the trained entrepreneurs.

"The Braskem Labs programs had a major impact in our project. Those were hours mentoring and lectures that helped us improve the future plans of the company, with full support of those involved in helping the selected startups", said Eliézer Machado, the entrepreneur responsible for ColOff.

Odebrecht Braskem Design Challenge

The Design Challenge is an initiative that brings together young university students from the Design and Architecture courses that offers students the opportunity to learn from different professionals, learn about new techniques and, at the same time, stimulate creativity.

The main goal of the project is to encourage the use of plastic, an intelligent yet not very accessible and exploited solution in architectural articles.

In its 5th edition, the Challenge launches a partnership with Fetiche Design, led by Paulo Biacchi and Carolina Armellini, and with Atex, a civil construction company. This edition presents a new proposal: the participants will develop a collection of three pieces (floor, coating and floating walls) that will be made available in the retail, at the second half of 2018.
