Values

Ethics – We dream of a world where ethics is not just a value to be described but permeates all business and relationships. That’s why it is the foundation of all our values.

Long term vision – We believe in long-term returns, and for that, governance is fundamental. As managers, we have already invested and divested, and we are guided by governance to ensure the longevity of the businesses we invest in and of Invest Tech itself. We are proud of our history, but we believe this is just the beginning.

Development – We are guided by value generation. From mentoring teams to investing in new business models, our goal is to contribute to the development of individuals, markets, the country, and the world.

Know-how – We are a team with over 20 years of experience in the Brazilian and international markets. We don’t know everything, but we have experienced different economic cycles, crises, acquisitions, mergers, and integrations. We ask important questions of entrepreneurs and have management experience to help them find the answers.

Collaboration – We have a hands-on approach and spare no effort to help our investees. We promote events and foster exchanges among portfolio companies. We introduce potential clients, investors, and advisers, collaborating to make our investees stand out in their respective markets. That’s why we seek entrepreneurs who value “smart money.”

Governance

Invest Tech was organized to reflect its business model: we seek to give the executive body freedom of operation once the strategy and main direction have been outlined.

To enable this type of conduct, we have formed a Board of Directors that directs the growth strategy and evaluates Invest Tech’s key long-term issues.

In addition to the Board of Directors, each fund has an Investment Committee dedicated to analyzing investment opportunities, follow-on and monitoring investees. This committee is made up of Gilmar Camurra, Mauricio Lima and Wagner Araujo, in addition to occasionally having our specialist advisors, depending on the sector in which the company being analyzed operates.

Our governance model follows the best international and local practices for companies of our size. We created an Internal Code of Conduct and Ethics, developed an Operational Safety Code of Conduct and are subscribers to the ABVCAP/ANBIMA Code of Conduct.
