Silicon Valley venture firms made their first investments in Brazil five years ago in 2011, helping to spur an important cycle of venture capital activity across Latin America. Since that time, the venture and entrepreneurial ecosystem has evolved not only in Brazil, but also in Argentina, Mexico, Chile, and Colombia.
Latin America Venture Capital: Five-Year Trends is a 20-page report on the early stage ecosystem in Latin America. Topics include fundraising & sources of capital; investment & deal highlights; sector, stage, & market trends; 2015 most active investors; top deals by amount & highlighted deals; a directory of startups; and VC exits. With support from Omidyar Network and Telefonica Open Future_, this is the first time LAVCA’s VC data set is fully available to the public.
