Living our values

“Being born in a family that works hard to reduce inequalities has shaped me. My parents are fully dedicated to social inclusion through a non-profit organisation founded ~40 years ago. One sister leads a start-up, another is an artist. None of them have chosen an easy path, but all have been pivotal in creating opportunities and changing lives. That’s why “choosing right over easy” resonates with me: my family showed me that, with kindness and tenacity, right over easy always pays off.”



Debora's Story

Debora was drawn to Apax by the opportunity to join an Impact team at its inception, in a firm that focuses on collaboration and continuous learning. She has been inspired by her family and aspired to create a purposeful career since she left Brazil, her home country, for university in 2010. Debora enjoys working on every step of the private equity value chain, from looking for impactful businesses, to partnering with management and drawing on the firm’s expertise to realise value as a team.
