Ideias Glaciares provides early-stage investment to entrepreneurs and creators in technology.
WE DON'T BUY COMPANIES OR ACQUIRE TECHNOLOGIES
WE FUND FOUNDERS.
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 achieve. We want to be an active part of this effort by bringing capital, contacts, counsel and encouragement to new businesses.
WE DON’T ONLY INVEST IN IDEAS
WE INVEST IN GREAT FOUNDERS WHO CAN TURN THOSE IDEAS INTO SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES.

Pedro and Dominic were the investors who were there from the beginning, and to whom we owe the existence of the company. They truly understand the nature of startup funding, inject trust in every step of the way, and are true mentors for the management.
On our first call we shared our passion, we shared a dream.
They trusted that dream, our dream, and step into uncertainty.
Is with courage, creativity, experience and commitment deeper than anyone could imagine that they inspire me every day to build together what none has ever done before.
If one day you came to know Didimo’s origins you will discover that we are Didimo because Dominic and Pedro trusted blindly that dream! What else can i ask?
Dominic and Pedro are much more then investors, they are real partners willing to help and allocate their vast resources in the growth of our business.
"Pedro and Dominic have invested more than just capital into Ziva. They are truly dynamic early-stage investors sharing their deep knowledge, networks, and experience while supporting a technology culture that thrives on high performance.
We feel blessed to have Dominic and Pedro as our first Investors. It’s great to have on our side someone with incredible experience that we can trust. They are always there to support, challenge and mentor us in this amazing journey. More than Investors we feel that they are part of our family.

A real partner from day one
A partner that challenges us to excellence, very founder centric and always ready to roll up their sleeves for the good and the bad moments. We never felt that there was a "them" and a "us".
Sensei most valuable assets are besides our solution, our talented team and our investors. Dominic Gualtieri and Pedro Lourenço bring enormous value as experienced all-rounded entrepreneurs for whom the world is a single place for doing business. We are very privileged to have them as Sensei investors, to work alongside them and have their trust and alignment with our vision to change the brick-and-mortar retail sector.
We created GlobalSolver using the culmination of some of our best skills. Once we had shown traction and a plan for potential success, it took only six months to get funding from IDEIAS GLACIARES. Founder-friendly investors, Pedro Lourenço and Dominic Gualtieri shared their knowledge, experience and ideas to help GlobalSolver get to where it is today.
