Start You Up Ventures is a meeting point between entrepreneurs with products and attitude that can change the world, and investors interested in participating in high impact scalable businesses. Our mission is to serve as a guide, presenting sensible opportunities to both sides of the ecosystem.


We are dedicated to capitalize on a unique opportunity presented by the proliferation of high growth potential startups and early-stage companies in Brazil – the fifth country with the most number of startups.


By investing in Brazilian companies with world-class technology and transferring the company and Intellectual Property to the United States, the opportunity and valuation of such companies will grow exponentially.

The process is not new. Several notable Brazilian and South American companies have come to the United States and succeeded. Start You Up Ventures acts systematically to increase the quality and quantity of deal flow and with that, create wealth for the stakeholders.
