We help local businesses
Capital Lab was founded in 2016 by Paulo Mattos and Luigi Cosenza, entrepreneurs with a passion for seed and venture capital investments in telecommunications, media and technology.
Paulo and Luigi have a history of successful investments. They have invested together at BR Towers, one of the first large independent cellphone tower management companies in Brazil. The investment was sourced and executed in 2012 when Paulo was a Managing Director at GP Investments and Luigi was the controlling shareholder of Sitesharing, a startup and very successful tower company in the market.
After the selling of BR Towers to American Tower Corporation for US$ 1 billion in the end of 2014, Paulo and Luigi have decided to create Capital Lab and expand their activities and investments in Brazil. They formed networks with seed and venture capital investors in the United States, Europe, India, Africa, China, and in other countries in Latin America.
