Pitanga invests in deep tech startups with high growth potential.
Our goal is to work with early-stage companies and to help entrepreneurs build their businesses.
The type of innovation we look to support should involve the development and deployment of new scientific discoveries or innovative technologies.
We look for businesses that address large markets and can capture a significant fraction of these markets in a short period of time. We believe that, in order to achieve this goal, companies must deploy a set of innovations capable of generating wide competitive advantage.
When these conditions are met, Pitanga is prepared to provide the capital necessary to develop and commercialize such technologies.
We contribute with the required capital and support the companies by participating in the board of directors.
We have no limitations regarding sectors or geographies. However, we prefer to invest in Latin American companies or companies that have a significant presence in the region.
We intend to invest in a limited number of companies to be chosen through a rigorous selection process.
Pitanga Invest, an investment vehicle constituted in 2014 based on our association with Brazilian entrepreneurs, is already fully deployed and, therefore, closed for new investments.
In 2020, again in association with Brazilian entrepreneurs, we launched Pitanga Redux, a new investment vehicle with capital available for investment in new projects.
