We make long-term bets on contrarians and outsiders. We partner with mission-driven entrepreneurs who have a creative imagination and a radical vision about how the world should look like. They thrive in chaos and are extraordinarily resilient.

We are highly selective in who we invest in, focusing on a handful of entrepreneurs per year in order to dedicate our full energy and heart to help them. We like to be artisans. 

We typically invest in companies that are generating revenues with attractive margins and/or unit economics and capital-efficient business models. 

We focus on Seed and and Serie A rounds. We are prepared to invest $1 million to $2 million of capital in each new investment and expect to continue investing in our portfolio companies in successive rounds. We are flexible on the mechanics. We can lead or participate. 

We primarily invest in companies based in Latin America, but will also back businesses based in North America and Europe in order to be connected, learn and build bridges to our entrepreneurs. 

We are impact investors. We seek to invest in companies and exceptional entrepreneurs that have the purpose to solve our biggest social and environmental challenges by developing businesses that are competitive, scalable and sustainable. 

We are active partners in building value and look to leverage our resources and our relationships to build market leaders. You might think VC is all about money. For us, is all about people.
