Mosaico is a investment firm specialized in internet ventures and formed by entrepreneurs. Our team has been building online companies in Latin America since 1995 and has created leading companies in different segments with successfull exits.
We invest and incubate ventures in different stages and work with a selective portfolio approach. We carefully choose what companies and sectors to bet and we and dedicate ourselves a lot once we make a choice. We prefer opportunities that come from our network, referred by someone we trust.
We believe in the power of great people working together. In the field of creativity and inovation, groups, and not individuals, make the difference.
As in a Mosaic, every single person in a organization has its singularity that employed in the benefit of a common goal achieves a great meaning. We believe that what make people united and motivated is a profound belief in a "cause", a reason to a company exist and impact the world.
We believe that mistakes are unavoidable, specially when we navigate in unexplored waters, and must be the largest source of learnings and motivation in pursuit of excellence. Failure is a part of the path to success.
We strive to have the best environment to attract and keep the best people. We believe in hard work, but always fun, and are loyal to our values:
"In the last 2000 years, all of the relevant intellectual movements took place in a network that was founded and sustained by groups, except for only three". Raymond Tallis
"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." Michael Jordan
WHAT WE DO
We do what it takes to make our companies succeed with some help from our past mistakes. A little bit more about us:
We are in the business of building lasting and profitable companies, not simply doing "deals" or providing "capital".
We are active, we do what it takes for our companies. We get our hands dirty.
We know some shortcuts from our past mistakes. We don't like to make the same mistake twice.
We don't have recipes, but we strongly back our views.
We democratize knowledge.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
We look for a rare combination of a passionate highly skilled entrepreneur and a project with high-impact in large markets. We also look for the following:
Talented people that know their weaknesses and love to work in teams. Obs: Plans change easily, people don't.
Relevant stake of the business so we can influence its decisions and justify our big involvement.
Technology solutions for large problems.
