We are...

INVESTORS.

We are private equity and venture capital investors in search of incredible entrepreneurs who are dedicated and committed to their Companies. We are sector agnostic investors looking for high growth potential businesses in diverse industries. We understand our roll as partners and shareholders and adopt a hands-on approach to our investments, taking a leading position in important financial, operational and strategic Company decisions.

MANAGERS.

We are highly committed to disciplined management of our investors’ and Companies’ resources as we believe that is the only way to improve and deliver the expected returns. We invest in Companies that we believe can benefit from the complementarity of our skills, implementing best practices based on the experience and track-record acquired throughout the years in the Brazilian private equity/venture capital markets.

ENTREPRENEURS.

We understand the challenges and pitfalls of entrepreneurship because we are, and have been entrepreneurs as well! Having been exposed to the real entrepreneurial experience allows us to connect in a closer, more realistic level, with entrepreneurs and their Companies’ needs.

OUR VALUES

We do business with people, and understand that a Company’s value and potential are directly related to the quality and commitment of its people. We are interested in partnering with ethical, well-intended people who are willing to carry business in an honest and transparent way so that all parts involved can benefit from the relationship. As long-term investors we look for investments, business opportunities, and relationships that will last for many years.
