Kaleydos, an initiative of the Jatobás Institute, is a platform for investment and development of solutions and businesses that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
We search and select early stage impact startups, aligned with one or more SDGs, with feasibility and scalability potential, measurable socio-environmental impact, and innovative business models.
Kaleydos’ differential is the customized offer for each business centered in “venture building”, merging mentoring, seed capital, co-management, connections, with an investment thesis focused on the initial stage, coupled with the vocation to build its own projects. In this way, we do not work with ready-to-go packages; instead each business has a different intervention.
Kaleydos does not prioritize the number of businesses in its portfolio but rather adopts a more qualified and vertical performance and for us, the financial return and positive social impact of our portfolio have the same importance.
In addition to developing its portfolio, Kaleydos also offers mentoring – unrelated to further investment intentions – for the modeling, prototyping and validation of early stage projects emerging from other initiatives of the Jatobás Institute involved with community leaders and the public sector. These programs have the same objective: to offer adequate conditions for social entrepreneurs to execute their transformative potential. All initiatives focus on the human being and are aligned with the SDGs.
