A Ponte | Soluções Colaborativas

About us

In 2018, the four business partners, Mariana, Paula, Isadora and Pauline, joined forces to start A Ponte in Brasilia. After years working in the area of ​​international relations, they felt the need to shift their careers to focus on initiatives that are aligned to their values.

A Ponte was born out of the need to engage in projects that offer significant social and environmental impacts, and from the perception that organizations need improvements in order to overcome challenges, such as:

  • Barriers that prevent organizations to develop projects in a collaborative, horizontal and engaged manner;
  • Staff who do not feel that their talents are appreciated causing demotivation and poor performance;
  • Incoherence between what the teams think, how they work and how they feel about results and decision-making processes.

The name A Ponte (“the bridge” in English) refers to the idea of ​​connection. A Ponte promotes dialogue and integration between people, teams and organizations from different cultures and countries.
