The participation of foreigners in investments in Brazilian startups grew this year, compared to the same period in 2021, according to a survey by the Distrito innovation platform.

According to the study, non-resident investors participated in 39% of the 238 investment rounds in Brazilian startups from January to April, compared to 33% in the same period last year.

The United States, Germany and Japan are the countries with the most managers investing in startups in the country, said Distrito, citing that foreigners mainly enter larger operations.

Funding above US$ 50 million had 90% of participation from international managers. At least two-thirds of the capital invested in the last five years came from abroad.

SoftBank alone participated in rounds that amounted to 28% of the US$9.4 billion raised. Last year, the Japanese fund led five rounds that created unicorns – MadeiraMadeira, Unico, Mercado Bitcoin, Merama and Freight.com.

The sectors most sought after by foreign funds are fintechs (26% of rounds), retailtechs (12%) and healthtechs (10%), according to the survey.
