Pitanga invests in deep-tech startups with high growth potential.
We aim to work with early-stage companies and help entrepreneurs build their businesses.
The type of innovation we look to support should involve developing and deploying new scientific discoveries or innovative technologies.
We look for businesses that address large markets and that can capture a significant fraction of these markets quickly. To achieve this goal, companies must deploy a set of innovations capable of generating a broad 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 investing in Latin American companies with a significant regional presence.
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 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.
