Sterna is the first internationalization boutique of Brazil. After 10 years of working for governments on inward investment, it was time to support Brazilian companies to make the best decisions for their international roadmap.
Our team is made of professionals with over 10 years of experience in the market. We have come together to help Brazilian companies choose the best country, strategy, product mix and structure to grow internationally.
