Institutions and individuals are accountable for contributing to build a better community. Therefore, we dedicate a relevant part of our time to causes we believe. Our pro bono practice focuses on organizations that support social impact entrepreneurship: financially sustainable businesses that generate beneficial outcomes to community in several fields, such as education, health and environmental preservation.
Learn more about the causes we support:
Quintessa is a non-profit organization that supports high social impact businesses. Among other initiatives, Quintessa offers an acceleration project that aims to boost businesses growth by means of mentoring and management support. BVZ Advogados provides legal advice to businesses accelerated by Quintessa, enabling them to cause even greater impacts.
Infineat is a non-profit organization that collects food that would be wasted or discarded in restaurants, markets and food factories – but is still proper for consumption – and deliver it to impoverished people through other non-profit organizations. BVZ provides tax advice to Infineat, enabling more people to be fed.
Startup Weekend is the largest entrepreneurship training in the world. In May 2019, the first Startup Weekend in São Paulo focused on social impact businesses took place, in partnership with Google for Startups, Techstars, among other supporters.
