Frequently Asked Questions

Is my Company and/or Project Acceptable?

Your company and project must meet some prerequisites to be acceptable for this program. To know whether your company size is acceptable, the first thing you need is to define your demand, that can be:

  • Innovation and/or Risky Projects, carrying high perspectives.
    • It's intended to help the company to mitigate uncertainty.
    • Micro, Small and Medium Businesses are acceptable for this category.
  • Entrepreneurs Looking for Support
    • Intended to help entrepreneurs in early stage or facing hardship.
    • Micro and Small Businesses are acceptable for this category.

The company sizes are defined according to your country's policies and/or legislation.

In addition, the consulting project must:
• Be something new and challenging, and/or important for the business.
• Be possible (and feasible) to be executed remotely, through use of remote communication.
• Have an internal person responsible to provide necessary information and do the tasks that aren't possible to be executed remotely.
• Easy access to the project team, that must be available when necessary/scheduled.

Is it Really Free?

In financial terms, YES, it's really free, you won't pay me any money. There's no trick, no requests, you just won't be charged.

But I'm actually earning something, and if you read the Section "Why Am I Doing it For Free?", you'll better understand what I'm having in exchange. I also require your authorization to eventually publish a showcase in my website, including your contact info, with general details about the developed project (it'll be reviewed by you to ensure it doesn't contain any sensitive or confidential information).

Optionally, after we finish our project, if you like the results and really want to offer me something in exchange (from the deep of your heart), I won't refuse if you offer me back:

  • Sincere Recommendations (and/or a letter of recommendation).
  • Services I might be needing.
  • Donations (I'm retired for studying, so not working nor having any income by now, and would appreciate a 'contribution' of any amount).

What if I Don't Know What I Need OR Whether I need?

If you understand what I'm offering, agree with the terms, but don't know whether you need it or not, or exactly what do you need, you have two options:

Submit your Case

It's another project for Bruno Today website, we'll receive "cases" where you describe some situation, anonymously or identified, and I'll personally do a quick analysis based on your description. We'll provide possible course of actions and/or general advice according to the available information, always with the due scientific reference and explicit information on the limitations of the analysis.

After our analysis, you might apply with a better comprehension of what you need!

Apply for a General Diagnosis

The project will start with a general diagnosis. It's like when you go to the doctor for a checkup; I'll check how your business is going through some surveys and diagnosis tools, and find out possible improvements, opportunities and recommendations for your company, so we'll know whether you need a consulting project or not and what do you need.
After that, we'll decide together the course of actions to take.

Strongly recommended for micro and small business!
