They chose when and how much money they would like to add onto their kids’ cards, and may even restrict some items from the menu. Parents also receive periodic nutrition reports in order to keep track of their kids’ evolution in terms of healthy nutritional habits.
Nutrebem has recently closed a partnership with French multinational Sodexo to operate some of their cafeterias in Brazil. Nutrebem’s GMV in 2017 surpassed BRL22M, and the number of issued cards reached 90,000.

ChefsClub is the largest restaurant discount platform in Brazil, currently with over 3,000 restaurants in 20+ cities. Having recently acquired the second largest competitor in Brazil, the company’s GMV is currently at BRL 100 million. Its two-sided business model allows restaurants to fill empty tables, while offering clients up to 30% off restaurant checks. Its mobile app is in use by 100.000 diners in Brazil, which use the club app as guarantee of always having a good restaurant experience at lower prices. In order to improve the diner experience and make the best possible use of all the contracts signed with restaurants, the company is bringing the payment to the smartphone screen. That allows the app to manage the discounts to the restaurants, deciding the discount level for each diner. The intelligence behind that yield management alone will eventually allow the company to drop the subscription revenues and reach a broader base of diners. The company’s path towards becoming a global discount dining club is already mapped out, and will start with acquisitions of Latin American players, later followed by European and US players.

Altave is a developer and manufacturer of solutions for communication or surveillance through fixed aerostats. They use the lighter than air technology to position cameras or sensors above 500ft. The aerostats work like communication or surveillance towers, except they don’t need any infrastructure. They can be raised whenever needed, with significantly broader range, since they stay in higher altitudes than towers. In fact, a single balloon can provide 360º in a 16 square mile area.
During the Rio Olympic Games in 2016, Altave was able to set up a platform with 360º vision and continuous video streaming around the stadiums. A single aerostat covered 44 km² around the main events, providing the defense forces with vision and automatic target following. This enabled the security teams to act with fast response times. Similar projects also took place in the World Cup and Libertadores Soccer Cup in Brazil.
