Investments

Our Strategy

As its first investment endeavor, NB CAPITAL is building a portfolio of companies based in Brazil, focusing on few industries with large market inefficiencies or unmet customers’ demands. 

This portfolio will include startups – mainly from financial, legal, education and HR sectors – and companies with more traditional business models, in sectors such as renewable energy and supply chain management. 

We merge the Venture Capital approach with traditional investment practices, all blended with the principles that led to success in our past business ventures.

Investments

Our philosophy

We look for founders with outstanding reputational equity, overachiever mentality, international mind-set and strong professional ethics.

We praise teams with complimentary capabilities, longterm orientation and focused on efficient execution.

We believe in strong support to the founders after the investment, especially in terms of strategic advisory, long-term planning and tools that ensure high efficiency in operations.

We always follow up our capital injection with strong business development efforts, in order to generate financing through clients’ acquisition and revenue growth.

We have a strong preference for entering at the early stage of a company, because that is the best moment to start building a longterm relationship with the founding team.

We believe in transparent and straightforward communication: be gentle with people and hard with problems.
