In Brazil, Bromelia Capital consolidated its operations with the acquisition of techtools ventures, a private investment company focused on high social impact businesses, established in 1995, as well as the incorporation of the newly created techtools capital.
Techtools ventures was founded by Jefferson Almoualem Plentz, in 1995, as a technology consulting firm in areas of social impact.
In 2015, it changed its focus exclusively for the development of innovative projects in the healthcare sector.
The first venture capital fund was launched in 2017, with 6 startups invested (fund zero).
In 2018, Plentz began building an innovation and technology network with philanthropic institutions, which resulted in the creation of a healthcare ecosystem with more than 2,000 hospitals. In addition, the companies of the first fund were divested.
As of 2020, techtools gained a new structure, with techtools ventures and techtools health becoming the investment and operational branch of the group, respectively.
