Bright Pixel We're a group of experienced builders, creative thinkers and investors, whose goal is to transform two key things: the way companies address innovation and how new ventures are put together.

Get to know us

We’re a group of experienced builders, creative thinkers, and investors with many years of experience on our backs, who got together due to multiple crazy coincidences and whose shared goal is to transform two key things: the way companies address innovation and how new ventures are put together.

There are many names for our approach. The general one is “company builder studio”, which is a good fit for what we aim to accomplish.

At BRPX, as we like to name it, we’ll be managing a venture lifecycle going from experimentation and lab phases to delivering MVPs, incubating unique product ideas into great startups in which we will co-invest.

Another way of looking at us is as a widely diversified and experienced group of people obsessed with helping skilled promoters come into our building, leverage our skills and engage our partner ecosystem the best they can, working as fast and lean as possible in order to grow and leave as founders, boosted by our seed-stage investment fund.

Through a strong partnership with SONAE Investment Management, BRPX will promote a close relationship with the group's technology and business needs in fields such as retail, media, cyber-security and telecommunications.

We are uniquely positioned to work with industry leaders from the SONAE group, as well as other industry players, the growing startup ecosystem, R&D units and universities, and investors from around the world.

Lifecycle model

Our lifecycle is divided into three phases: Labs, Incubation and New Ventures.

The companies we're working with

These are the companies we're currently working with both in the Labs and the Incubation phases of our managed lifecycle:

Our partners

We're always looking for partners in industry or academia to work in technology, research, product development, co-investments and other activities, helping into building a stronger ecosystem and better opportunities we can all benefit from.

Pipeline

We’re already hard at work building a pipeline of ideation and lab projects with great companies, investing in two MVPs to become go-to-market startups, and incubating startups into our ecosystem.

  • P24

    P24 is a Google DNI Innovation Fund project won by Público and Bright Pixel. Based on the fact that readers miss out on some of the most relevant journalism produced while they were away, the goal of this project is to provide tailored news to users when they return online.

    P24 has both technical innovations and content production challenges, and it's being worked by experienced teams from BRPX and Público.
