The oldest STRO organisation in South America is called InSTROdi, in Brazil. InSTROdi is the testing field for several innovative approaches and especially variants of C3. InSTROdi also harbors one of the two STRO IT teams which every day contributes to upgrading Cyclos software and adapting this software to the needs of its users.
In the early years InSTROdi accompanied the test with the Bonus/Fomento method.
Supported by its lawyer, InSTROdi solved the complicated legal aspects of a digital exchange circuit and consequently founded CompRaS, an exchange circuit for businesses in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. In partnership with Garantia RS a guarantee system was developed to give the CompRaS members additional securities.
In partnership with SEBRAE InSTROdi developed the C3 corporate.
Over the years InSTROdi developed into a Knowledge Center and played a important role in the transfer of knowledge to its younger counterpart in Uruguay: STRO Uruguay.
InSTROdi is an OSCIP, a Brazilian juridic person attributed to NGO’s adhering to a strict set of rules, especially in the field of administrative transparency.
