Our Approach

Ideias Glaciares provides early-stage investment to entrepreneurs and creators in technology.

We don't only invest in ideas.
We invest in great founders who can turn those ideas into successful companies.

We believe that entrepreneurial spirit, ambition and hard work are the key factors separating success from failure. This is what makes a good idea become a great business.

We are looking to help founders to achieve. We want to be an active part of this effort by bringing capital, contacts, counsel and encouragement to new businesses.

We don't buy companies or acquire technologies.
We fund founders.
