GITEC Brasil, a subsidiary of GITEC Consult located in Rio de Janeiro, joined with a diverse group of companies and founded a centre of innovation for sustainability. Its name, “GOMA” was chosen through a branding process and the association was legally registered.
The intention of GOMA is to connect know-how of different companies and persons, form a creative working space and open new business opportunities.
The currently 25 companies cover a broad spectrum from various fields of sustainability. Among others: an architectural office, advertising agencies, an environmental video production company, a crowdfunding platform, design firms, a company for sustainable building and other material.
GOMA rented an old warehouse complex with 800 m² of working space in the harbour region of Rio and developed a utilization concept to raise additional money. For example: opening a café, renting out rooms for events, workshops, etc. or offering shared office solutions (“hot desks”), where desks can be rented on a daily or weekly basis.
