We have chosen to Rise together.
Rise Venture invests in businesses that combine financial returns with positive socio-environmental impact. We believe that together we are able to achieve more and better with an approach that goes beyond the invested capital.
We become partners and work side by side with entrepreneurs implementing our proprietary Private Equity strategy.
“Rise has been fundamental to making Beleaf a company that is financially scaleable and that seeks at its core to make a positive impact on the world. The stand-out aspect of the work they have done with Beleaf has been the development of the leadership team in a manner that is authentic, empathetic and transparent. In addition, Rise has been responsible for raising investment through Smart Money, which is extremely well aligned to our values.”— Fernando Bardusco, CEO of Beleaf
"Rise Ventures is playing a key role in Alba Energia's growth, helping us, I believe, in one of the worst phases of a small business: growth. With a skilled and hyper-proactive team, we're managing to lessen this 'pain' by building a solid foundation for our next steps, which will not be small."— Marcos Campanharo, co-founder and CEO of Alba
"Rise Ventures means much more than a financial contribution. They help us daily to build a business that generates positive impacts wherever it goes. We gained in governance, management and, above all, in the ability to execute and create. It is an investment that, above all, is aligned with our values and beliefs, a fundamental and non-negotiable condition for us."— Ricardo Glass, co-founder of Okena
"The value that Rise adds to the business is enormous: from the capture of resources, through to the management and methodologies, the highly-skilled and hands-on team they provide, and the networking. It’s noticeable how much the transformation that has occurred since they joined as managing partners of Beleaf has been crucial to the development of our company."— Jônatas Mesquita, co-founder and CMO of Beleaf
"Having a business with leveraged growth, such as Beleaf, raises challenges that go beyond the ability of the entrepreneur to execute. Rise’s support, with methodology for building a business plan, governance, hands-on people, resource capture, and managing partners who are aligned, has made this journey much more secure.”— Fábio Biase, co-founder and COO of Beleaf
“Rise took Beleaf’s management to another level, through in-depth discussions, analyses and resolutions, so that we have consistency in our business and can manage things in the most appropriate and correct manner that the situation demands and allows. To start down the road with Rise was to take a step towards the professionalization of a Start-Up, without losing the characteristics of one, which are speed, assertiveness in investing, and decision-making within a development scenario.”— Cíntia Trovo, Executive Chef and Managing Partner of Beleaf
"Rise has a great ability to solve complex problems and overcome difficulties. The solutions are analyzed by putting themselves in the other's shoes to find something that works for both sides. I see this as their quality and a differentiator. Since Rise entered our day-to-day life, we had some very significant leaps, from the planning capacity to the creation of processes and cadence in the recruitment and selection flow with the use of technology"— Francisco de Goye, CEO of Okena
"Jeitto was born out of the desire to bring financial services to millions of Brazilians who have limited access to credit. Rise will help us to continue executing our purpose, especially in this moment of accelerating growth. The investment model, with a focus on value creation, brings to Jeitto a senior team from Rise that works on a daily basis, integrated with the company's leadership in tactical and strategic actions. We are very happy with the partnership and believe that it will make a difference in the journey of growth"— Fernando Silva, CEO of Jeitto
"We chose Rise to be part of the journey given the local focus of action, its specialization in startups in the growth phase, its close support for value generation on strategic fronts and, mainly, given its alignment of values and principles for creating impact positive. And we don't regret the choice"— Thiago Carvalho Pinto, CEO of Eureciclo
