WHO WE ARE ?

A group of experienced individuals that invest capital, business expertise and network to, alongside with financial returns, generate true positive and significant impact on society. We support entrepreneurs to succeed on managing and growing businesses that, as a core mission, have the potential in making a difference on people’s lives.

What are our key beliefs ?

Better self, Better world

Better self, Better world

This group has stopped to realize it's privileged position within the present delicate situation of the world. More importantly, has agreed to cooperate with thoughts, relationships and investments to nurture businesses that can scale to change the world.

Positive impact alongside financial returns

Positive impact alongside financial returns

This group believes that the world needs to be more sustainable and inclusive. Governments and philanthopists alone won't create the necessary change. Financial markets will have to work not only for investors, but for the people and the planet. It will soon become a practice for investors to consider social and environmental impact on their investments decisions.

In practice what does this mean ?

 

That we dedicate time and energy to find promising entrepreneurs who have set-up tech-based businesses that address key Brazilian education, health and finance priorities, have proven initial success but require coaching, networking and investments to gain scale.
