|Description||Brazilian multi-stage investment firm|
Mosaico is a Brazilian multi-stage investment firm providing capital and strategic support for internet companies from early to late stage. Itâ€™s the result of a partnership between OrganizaÃ§Ãµes Globo, the leading media group in Brazil, and the entrepreneurs Guilherme Pacheco, JosÃ© Guilherme Pierotti and Roberto Malta. The three entrepreneurs are pioneers in the Internet and have founded and managed some of the most successful companies in the sector in Latin America.
Among them, are Domain Internet, one of the pioneer Internet providers in the country, sold to PSINet in 1999; Advice, an online marketing company sold in 2001 to the Lorentzen Group; and Bondfaro, a price-comparison site. In 2006, Bondfaro merged with the competitor BuscaPÃ©, which was sold to the South-African media group Naspers-MIH in one of the largest Internet transactions in Brazil.
Presently, Mosaico has 4 companies in its portfolio: the travel search engine Mundi, leader in its segment; the game developer Gazeus, which has the biggest card-game site network in Brazil; and the price comparison site Zoom scheduled to launch in the second semester of 2011. ClickOn is the fourth, and most recent, investment.
