Hello! We’re MidStage Ventures.

We’re dream builders. We are not afraid of big challenges, so long there is a purpose in developing this or that venture. We focus in early stage companies, either tangible product or apps/software/systems/ecommerces, bearing in mind we are always looking for innovative or tech products.

Just like in fine handcrafted woodworking, we take attention to details to the next level, we plan ahead and execute only when we are sure of our success.

Our dream-building process (or acceleration process) is comprised of 6 steps in 2 stages:

STAGE 1: Equity for Services

IDEATION >

PRE OPERATION / DEVELOPMENT >

< VALIDATION >

We make sure the product has a steady flow from idea to validation, through a pre operation process. This way we are able to pivot and shape the product based on the current needs. When first reaching the validation phase, the product may go back to ideation if we realize there are some changes to be thought and occasionally implemented. We only tackle operation phase with solid, well thought and tested products, increasing our likelihood of success.

OPERATION >

GROWTH >

CONSOLIDATION OR EXIT STRATEGY

Our business model comprises an “equity for service” standard at the beginning (from idea to validation). Instead of simply investing money into the startup, we provide a large number of services in trade for equity.

Those services are:

  • Legal
  • Financial
  • Marketing
  • PR (Public Relations)
  • Design
  • Digital Development
  • Product Development
  • Network
  • Talent Searching
  • Negotiations

STAGE 2: Cash Boost

After the companies reach the “operation” stage, we’ll invest cash/money on them, if needed.

The amount will depend on needs and interests of both parties. MidStage is not obligated to invest, but will invest, co invest or find investor as the startups reach this stage. Also, we’ll do whatever we can to make sure they’ll be able to operate in bootstrapping until we reach a better valuation for the company and, thus, look for investors.

Why MidStage? What sets us apart?

Mentors

Mentors are well known players in the market that will, from time to time, exchange and share business culture with those young entrepreneurs
facing new startups. This together with all the above services we provide, lead to a better chance of success.
So, our differential is this hands-on service and mentorship, that lead to excel your dreams.

International Presence and Mentality

We are global and we are not afraid of international boundaries. We are based in Brazil and US, and have partners and clients in Brazil, US and Europe, willing to tackle new markets.
