Abreu Advogados advised Sogrape on setting up and launching the Sogrape Ventures venture capital fund, which was created with the idea of investing in disruptive start-ups with applications in the wine value chain or with innovative products in the drinks sector, with an initial investment of five million euros.

To manage the fund, Sogrape relies on the fund manager Beta Capital, a leading player in the Venture Capital area in Portugal.

Abreu Advogados supported Sogrape throughout the legal process that led to the creation of this investment fund, in what is yet another step in the Sogrape Group’s entrepreneurship strategy, thus contributing to greater support and dynamism for innovative start-ups that contribute to the evolution of the wine and drinks sector.

The Abreu Advogados team advising Sogrape was made up of Diogo Pessanha, professional partner, and Isabel Pinheiro Torres, associated Partner at Abreu Advogados.
