CARAVELA-A VENTURE CAPITAL FIRM SPECIALIZING IN EARLY-STAGE INVESTMENTS ACROSS LATIN AMERICA, FOCUSING ON PRE-SEED, SEED, AND SERIES A ROUNDS.

They employ a sector-agnostic strategy, aiming to build a diverse portfolio of 25-30 companies in each of their funds. Caravela is known both for their go-to market approach, having analyzed more than 3.5k companies in less than 4-years, and their rigorous analytical approach, seeking high returns and sustainable growth. It distinguishes itself with a top-tier analysis method and a high-quality pipeline, leading to outstanding investment opportunities in companies like Mottu, Caju, LogComex, NocNoc, and many others.

They focus on buying companies at fair prices and selling them at significantly higher values, aiming for a 30x return. Additionally, Caravela Capital provides comprehensive value-creation services to their selected startups, ranging from People Strategy to Fundraising, supported by a specialized team and enhanced through its robust network of Founders, C-levels and Funds across LATAM. They back entrepreneurs with exceptional vision and capability, targeting companies in considerable markets with disruptive products/services and high scalability potential. Their portfolio reflects a commitment to transforming the startup landscape in Latin America.

Caravela began its journey in Curitiba, a city that was elected last year as the most intelligent in the world, and is also the second best city for startups in Brazil, according to StartupBlink Report. Caravela is proud to be part of this story, as well as its ecosystem, called Pinhão Valley, a network created to support innovation across the city. “We started our company almost at the same time as the Pinhao Valley was gathering together as an ecosystem and that has helped not only us but especially many startups to thrive, not only in Curitiba, but all over Latin America” says Mario de Lara, founder at Caravela.
