Vision & Mission


Created in 2015 by the Focus Brasil Foundation as a natural development of the highly successful Press Awards, the Focus Business Award was an instant hit in the vibrant Brazilian business community.

Business Press Award is supported by BBG-Brazilian Business Group, BACCF-Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce of Florida, CFBACC-Central Florida Brazilian-American Chamber of Commerce, and ABI Inter-Brazilian International Press Association. Business Press Award is also sponsored by major multinational corporations and the most relevant Brazilian bi-national institutions.

Board & Journey


The Focus Business Award Board of Directors is formed by representatives from the institutions which support the event in each of its editions and by the governance of the Focus Brasil Foundation.

The journey to become a winner at the Business Press Award:

– Step 1 –  Any Brazilian owned business or Professional must be recommended by one of the institutions associated with the award. 

– Step 2 – The Board of Directors holds meetings to analyze all recommendations and then makes the final decisions.

– Step 3 – The official list of winners is publicly announced. The Award Ceremony is held weeks later in a, for guests only, formal event.
