Values

Ethics – We dream of a world where ethics is not a value to be described, but permeates every business and relationship. It is the foundation of all our values.

Long-term vision – We believe in long-term return, and, to this end, governance is critical. As fund managers, we have invested, we have divested, and to ensure the business continuity of our investees, and our own, governance is key. We are proud of our history, but we believe this is just the beginning.

Development – Value creation guides us. From mentoring teams to investing in new business models, what we want is to contribute to the development of people, markets, the country and the world.

Know-how – We are a team with over 20 years of experience in domestic and international markets. We do not know it all, but we have experienced different economic cycles, crises, acquisitions, mergers and integrations. We make important questions to entrepreneurs, and have management experience to help them with the answers.

Collaboration – We have a hands-on profile, making every effort needed to help our portfolio companies. We promote events, foster interactions between our investees, present potential customers, investors and advisers, helping them to become leaders in their respective markets. Therefore, we seek entrepreneurs who value “smart money”.

Governance

Invest Tech was organized to reflect its business model: giving freedom of execution to the management, once the vision and strategy have been designed. It is our Board of Directors’ role to guide these decisions.

Furthermore, each fund has its own Investment Committee, dedicated to analyzing investment opportunities, follow-on rounds, and strategic decisions regarding our portfolio companies. This committee is formed by Gilmar Camurra, Mauricio Lima and Wagner Araujo, as well as some advisers, depending on the sector of the company to be analyzed.

Our governance model follows local and international best practices for companies of our size. We have a Code of Conduct, a Code of Operational Security and we have signed ABVCAP/ANBIMA’s Code of Conduct.
