Social Holding

Dendê Valley

VALE DO DENDÊ is a social holding company designed to foster forward looking ecosystems with focus on diversity. Working largely in the promotion of the ecosystem of Salvador, Bahia, the group has been developing actions in three pillars:

Investing in businesses of social and economic impact through Aceleradora Vale do Dendê (Vale do Dendê Accelerator);
Forming creative talents through Vale do Dendê Academy
Providing services to public and private entities through a strategy consultancy
This work began in 2016, when about 50 makers, public agents, representatives of the academy and social organizations came together to assist in the co-creation and validation of a business model which is different from what had existed until then in this rich, important and diverse ecosystem.

Since then the initiative has already held major events such as Ocupação Afro Futurista (Afrofuturist Occupation) at Nova Lapa Station (largest bus and subway station in the North-Northeast), it has helped build public policies for innovation and it was featured in national and international media for its pioneering and strategic vision.

Business Accelerator

DENDÊ VALLEY BUSINESS ACCELERATOR was launched in November 2017 and it is sponsored by Fundação Itaú Social and Fundação Alphaville. It received 107 registrations in less than two months in it’s first call, culminating in the selection of 30 startups working with creative economy and technology in the segments of fashion, jewelry design, street furniture, tourism, automotive technology, games, etc. All of them develop low-cost, high- social impact technology products and solutions.

The accelerator appears to fill a large gap in Salvador’s Creative Economy segment, especially for peripheral-based entrepreneurs who are not always covered by the radar of such programs. The next call will be in September 2018.

In the photos below, it is possible to follow some important moments of the launching of the Public Notice and the pre-acceleration dynamics.

Vale Consulting

Consulting

It is a strategic consultancy to elaborate projects of innovation and creativity. The city of Salvador is our first working field where we established areas of the city that have economic potential and we designed studies, partnerships with companies and public sector. The consultancy came as a result of the studies to define the model of Vale do Dendê Holding. The richness and creative potential that emerged in all regions of Salvador became evident from the very beggining of the project.

 

We have developed methodologies capable of adding value to the existing productive chain and structured programs focused on local development, having similar experiences in several cities in Brazil and abroad as benchmark. Knowledge of the territory, its people and its powers can represent a competitive differential for those who want to install projects of an economic and social nature in a given region. This is what Vale Consultoria intends to offer to the market. Our approach takes as its premise three broad axes:

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Local development and the shift of some “old-economy” companies depend on changing paradigms. In order to increase the chances of success, it is necessary to use appropriate methodologies and tools.

TECHNOLOGY

The toolbox needs to contain the tools needed to leverage each step of a project. Avoiding, therefore, super or under-sized expenses.

CREATIVITY

As important as doing it is how to do it. Thinking outside the box and using new approaches to old problems and dilemmas are some of the tenets of our work.
