In addition to the support of its member firms, LAVCA research and programs are made possible thanks to an ongoing core commitment from the Multilateral Investment Fund and the Andean Development Bank. Funding provided by MIF and CAF ensure the integrity of products such as the Annual Scorecard on the PE/VC Environment, investor education programs, and LAVCA’s free monthly newsletter, The Latin America PE/VC Report.
The Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) has as one of its primary goals the promotion of inclusive growth through private sector development. An independent trust fund administered by the Inter-American Development Bank, MIF has been a pioneer in the Region for seed and venture capital investments. Through the funds in which MIF invested, over 300 small businesses and start-ups have received long-term equity financing, and this has been translated into job creation and direct benefits to the countries’ economies.
