Strategic Partners

We understand the redefinition of success in the economy and in society as a collective effort, as a shared dream. Therefore, we would like to thank all organizations, companies and people who are our strategic partners.

Our special thanks to:

B Communities

To achieve a systemic change in the economy, it is necessary to generate connections among the main players. Sistema B acknowledges these strategic references as protagonists in the Communities: meetings for reflection, dialogue, value acquisition and building of collective agendas (that go far beyond the personal ones) comprising people who share the same passion.

This section will always be modified, since there’s a variation in the objectives of each community, meetings periodicity and local realities of each country.
