Investe São Paulo – Agência Paulista de Promoção de Investimentos e Competitividade (São Paulo's Investment Promotion Agency) was conceived from a working group in the then Department of Development of São Paulo (currently Department of Economic Development, Science, Technology and Innovation) and the Institute of Technological Research (IPT), established with the purpose of developing mechanisms for strengthening the economy.

As part of this strategy, in April 2008, the Department of Development created a division focused on the attraction of investments, which has been acting as a gateway for new investors, as well as for those already established in the State.

In parallel, Law No. 13.179 of August 19, 2008 was issued, which authorized the Executive Branch to establish Investe São Paulo as an Independent Social Service, legal entity of private law, nonprofit, of collective and public interest, regulated by Decree No. 53.766 as of December 05 of the same year, incorporating and expanding the activities of this division.
