that marked the life of musician @serginho_do_cavaco .
Born in São Paulo, the musician started studying the cavaquinho at the age of 11. At the age of 13, he was already playing in several samba groups in the city of São Paulo, making this path lead him to be a member of Banda Evandro Músic Show, which promoted the liveliest Carnival dances at the Cartola Clube in São Paulo.
The musician lived dramatic days with a delicate subject that demanded attention. In 2022, a very serious illness diagnosed as malignant cancer, affected his left leg, causing his world to collapse, in the midst of Pandemiá.
The days were spent between hiccups and regrets that prevented him from finding a way out for healing during the percussion. The disease hindered his trips to the Studio to record the project "A Minha Fe,".
Already diagnosed with the disease, undergoing chemotherapy,, the artist concluded that it was the most difficult project to be recorded in his life, for having to sing, compose and choir a story today for the victorious!

These are exciting times for the FoodFutureCo Community! With a bunch of updates from our cohort company graduates that scaled up, leveled up, and took the next big step, here’s the latest community news to mark the highlights of our portfolio companies just in time for the holiday season.
FFC Community Video Call Highlights Two of Its Cohort Graduate Companies: Harvest Returns and Seal the Seasons
Last November 30, we conducted our FFC Community Video Call with some of our cohort graduates. Harvest Returns and Seal the Seasons shared with us plenty of groundbreaking updates about their brand, vision, goals, and direction.
Shen Tong, Managing Partner of FoodFutureCo, has also shared with us updates and insights about the current interconnected and global industries of food, agriculture, technology, and climate.
“The future of food is now,” Shen said in his welcome message at the FFC Community Video Call. He mentioned the different crises happening around the world for the past decade—the Covid-19 pandemic, high inflation, climate change, food crisis, and so much more. But while the human race seems to be living more and more in misalignment with the order of nature and the universe at large, we are also winning through small but impactful solutions that aim to rebuild the harmony that mankind has with the environment. “We are moving beyond advocacy, beyond initial conversations, toward macro risk adjusted strategies”, Shen reported, and this recognizes the high yields, returns, and equities that investing in the food industry has to offer. FFC's portfolio companies are a testament to that.
Harvest Returns believes that supporting farmers helps sustain the planet. In sustainable farming businesses, farmers and investors can work hand in hand to create profit, growth, and learning in the agritech industry.
From its founding in 2016 and being an FFC cohort graduate in the spring of 2019, Harvest Returns have gone through 44 successful raises, 5 exits, and a total of $6.2M investor distribution to date. Spring 2022 has also gathered an amazing $2.5M in the company’s seed round.
Harvest Returns has been continuing to push for support for farmers through specialty crops and agribusiness, sustainably-produced livestock, and controlled environment agriculture. To know more about how you can support, invest, and partner with Harvest Returns, check out its website.
Seal the Seasons believes that local food is better. That’s why the company has chosen to streamline the distribution of local farm products through a distributed supply chain rather than a centralized one. It is aiming to build a $100M brand amidst the 55.5B frozen produce market.
Because of the company’s commitment to its goals and values, Seal the Seasons has shown velocity growth across different segments of grocery, such as Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, and Food Lion. It has also managed to forge long-term partnerships with retailers, which range from 4-6 years to date since its inception and funding.
For Seal the Seasons, the next big step and phase of growth is creating value-added innovation with locally grown ingredients. If you want to witness the company's growth beyond fruits and vegetables, and learn how to contribute, invest, or partner with Seal the Seasons, check out their website.

UPDATE: The House Select Committee is set to release their final report of the January 6th investigation to the public TOMORROW.
The House Select Committee has been working tirelessly for nearly two years on this investigation – some of which directly implicates Republican state legislators across the country – and we believe that the public should be given the opportunity to see the full truth behind Jan. 6th.
We’ve already seen some of the committee’s findings during televised hearings, but there could be much more in the written report.
Remember: This investigation not only looked into Trump, but state election officials and legislators in states like Arizona and Georgia – so it could reveal critical information that could help us fight insurrectionists and election deniers on the state level.
