Theme: Startups and Adventure

Florianópolis, Brazil

March 10 – April 27

Want to experience the best beaches Brazil has to offer? Then Florianópolis is the right place for you. We’ll be hiking, surfing, waterfalling, boating, sunning, beaching, and all-out-adventuring our way through our favorite part of Brazil. Not a trip to miss.

This island is also home to a vibrant startup scene. From tech, to design, from ecotourism to music production—Florianópolis has someone for you to network with.

*Secret* Want to know why we’re starting a week late in Florianópolis?

It’s because we’re taking a week to experience Rio Carnival with our HP alumni before heading down. If you want to come with us to South America in 2019 and tack on the HP Rio Carnival experience, let us know!

Our Homebase

Private units or a room in the community penthouse

We’ve got some pretty sweet housing ready for you in Lagoa de Conceição. We’ve got single person loft apartments for those who want their own space and then down the road we have a big penthouse for those who want to have some real community living. Wherever you stay, we’ll all be gathering at the pool!

You’ll never be too far from anything. We’re next to the coworking space, restaurants, grocery stores, parks, gyms, bars, the beach—everything you will want.

Our Workspace

Nothing inspires us like an artsy coworking space

A short walk from the housing is our lovely O Sitio coworking space nestled in the hills above the lake. Half art exhibit, half coworking, this space is bound to get your creative juices flowing.

The back patio is a great place to work for an afternoon, stretch in the morning yoga session, or relax at the weekly get together with a local DJ.

All the basics are accounted for—the fastest wifi in the area, multidimensional work spaces, a kitchen, and so much more.
