Peer-Selected Investments in Latin America

Recording: Peer-Selected Investments in Latin America, Mar 9, 2019

Come meet our peer-selected investment process and how it has been a core piece of Village Capital’s work to reinvent early stage investing. It’s helped VilCap Investments reach its goal of a diverse, high performing portfolio (42% of our portfolio companies have a female founder or co-founder, and 30% of our US companies have a Black or Latinx founder or co-founder, far exceeding the typical venture capital fund, and we’ve already seen 13 exits to date).
We will discuss how this process has been shaping the latest investments in the region and how key players participate of this new method to better judge entrepreneur’s ideas.
