Algar Ventures

Our track record shows that entrepreneurship and innovation have always been part of our strategy to grow, expand and become ever more competitive. This attitude of constant renewal has brought us to where we are today - through our almost 90 years of work in serving to make our clients, employees, partners and shareholders more prosperous. We strive every day with a genuine desire to develop a better society and a stronger country where everyone can succeed.

To perpetuate and strengthen the innovative spirit of the Group, we created Algar Ventures - a venture capital arm that aims to invest in disruptive businesses. We have already contributed to Alsol Energias Renováveis (a renewable energy company) and NetSupport. In addition to direct investments, Algar Ventures is also a shareholder in venture capital funds such as BR Startups that was created by Microsoft Participações and that works with other major corporations including Monsanto, Qualcomm and Banco Votorantin.

In partnership with Endeavor, we have also implemented Algar Ventures Open: an acceleration program through which we have selected 15 scaleups with the objective of finding new investment opportunities and facilitating partnerships that can provide solutions to the challenges facing our businesses.
