As a social investment policy, Valid Digital Certification, part of the Valid Group, is pleased to announce that it is the new sponsor for basketball at Sesi Franca (a community center in Franca, São Paulo State). The initiative is part of a mission to drive activities that encourage taking part in sports, which is a very strong part of Brazilian culture, and to use the brand’s strategies to promote health and well-being.

According to Márcio Nunes, the Chief Executive of Valid Digital Certification, choosing Sesi Franca Basketball was in line with the company’s philosophy. “It’s a team with an ideology that is based on principles, respect, and tradition, just like our company, so we just couldn’t say no to this opportunity.” They have had a very successful journey, participating for 50 years running in national and international tournaments, garnering hundreds of medals, and being recognized as the most traditional basketball club in Brazil.

“The Franca Trade and Industry Association (ACIF) believes that Valid’s support, trust, and investment in Sesi Franca Basketball goes beyond the basic needs of a club and reaches very important social areas. A practical example of this are the club’s basic categories, which offer education through sports, and emphasize values such as discipline and citizenship, among hundreds of youths. More than medals, this is the type of payoff the country needs,” states Dorival Mourão Filho, ACIF President.

Luis Prior, President of Sesi Franca Basketball, points out that the partnership with Valid Digital Certification, a leading company in its field, is strengthening the team even further. “We have begun a long-term partnership, and I have no doubt that it will be a very fruitful one.”
