About Kaeté Investimentos

Kaeté focuses on projects that encourage a more efficient use of natural resources with a relevant social and economic impact on low-income families.

Our investments promote economic development and job growth in regions with: low availability of capital, lower than average HDI and fragile ecosystems. Deploying growth capital in these places, located outside of the mainstream big centers of Brazil, unlocks entrepreneurial opportunities, decreasing the inequality gap with sustainable development

Kaeté is the manager of the first Impact Investing Private Equity Fund focused in the Amazon Region looking for opportunities to promote sustainable and scalable development with reduction of deforestation in the region.

We became a B Corporation because we want to be part of this network that share our core values.

We want to be part of an organization that is promoting a new way of doing businesses delivering simultaneously economic development with social and environmental impact

Being a Certified B Corp helps us to be recognized for the work we do and to present the measurable result of the invested businesses.

The Change We Seek®

Kaeté seeks to improve social and economic conditions of communities living on less developed regions, by investing in businesses aligned with conservation of natural resources. Kaeté understands that this is the real sustainable development!

What makes us a better company?
