BR STARTUPS FIP invests in startups in the post-acceleration stage, labeled as having insufficient volume to attract investments of "Series-A" Venture Capital Funds, this positioning enables the fund to continue the investment cycle and guide the development of these startups, actively contributing to strengthen the Brazilian ecosystem of innovative entrepreneurship.
