Investments

Our Strategy

With our investment division, we are building a portfolio of companies based in Brazil, focusing on industries with large market inefficiencies or unmet customers’ demands.

This portfolio includes startups – mainly from real estate, financial, legal, educational and HR sectors – and SMBs with traditional business models, in sectors such as real estate, renewable energy, food industry and supply chain management.

We merge the Venture Capital approach with traditional investment practices, guided by principles that led to the success of 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 complementary capabilities, long-term orientation and focused on efficient execution.

We believe in strong support to the founders after the investment, 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.
