At the beginning, it managed investments of its general partners and high net worth individuals. On May 2000, e-Platform received a new round of funding from strategic financial investors, which included Unibanco; Brasil Warrant, the holding company of Unibanco’s controlling shareholders, the Moreira Salles family, and Marcos de Moraes - founder of ZipNet.
