  • About Us

    A little bit about us...

    We are a company that wishes to be a bridge between high tech entrepreneurs and the success they are seeking for, supporting them through several initiatives.

     

    In 2010, when questioning himself about the lack of successful tech startups in Brazil and Latin America, our founder Felipe Matos envisioned and created our 5 weeks acceleration program. It gives to entrepreneurs a platform to create spectacular startups, by uniting content, inspiration, mentorship, network and a lot of hard work.

     

    The program is based in 3 main pillars: entrepreneurial education, collaborative culture and access to capital. Since its first program, in 2011, hundreds of startups have passed through it, coming from all over Brazil and Latin America.

  • Get to know our compass. Meet our values

    • Always with the entrepreneur

    We believe that the center of any startup is its founding team. We believe that if a decision is bad for the entrepreneur, it is also bad for the startup, and for the ecosystem.

    • Work in collaborative networks

    We can do more, faster, having more impact and being more efficient when we work together. We strongly believe in working collaboratively with a network of partners. That's why we value and engage our relationships with ours and with the ecosystem.

    • Seek spectacular results

    Well-made products, spectacular experiences and solid cash flow is what we seek for us and for our startups. Spectacular businesses generate spectacular results in all dimensions.

    • Work with joy

    We love what we do! We invest an enormous and important amount of our lives at work. That's why we want to be happy and have fun along this journey. without losing focus on our work's results.

    • We do care

    We like to see the impact of our work. It matters to us! We care about the outcome of what we do and we want to support the creation of new products and services that improves people's life and takes us to a better world.
