Latin America

OVERVIEW

Over the last decade, a majority of Latin American countries have shown impressive growth rates, and millions of people have social mobility for the first time. Yet millions of Latin Americans still lack access to a bank account, suffer chronic malnutrition, and lack access to education, and over 40% live below the poverty line. Entrepreneurs taking advantage of technology and local innovations have the promise to address the needs of these groups and address the region’s social and environmental challenges.

Joe Speicher
Director Ejecutivo
Autodesk Foundation

Autodesk Foundation partnered with Village Capital to identify the most promising entrepreneurs developing products and solutions for health challenges facing the region. We have been incredibly impressed with the quality of the applicants, demonstrating that the entrepreneurial community is actively confronting this critical area of needs.

Armando Senra
Managing Director, Head of Latin America & Iberia Region
BlackRock

We’re excited by the impact that we can have on real entrepreneurs... That way, we can contribute to Mexico in a much deeper way than just building our business in the country.

René Salazar
Global Core Payments
PayPal

We see in Village Capital a strategic partner that shares the same values as us. PayPal is the payments platform, Village Capital is the organization that helps grow the buyers' and sellers' inclusion through the ventures that participate in its program.

Amanda Jacobson
Regional Manager, Latin America
Village Capital

Cuando llegamos a México en 2014 para realizar nuestro primer programa de empresas FinTech, apenas existía un ecosistema del cual hablar. Dos años después hay alrededor de una decena de organizaciones que apoyan específicamente a empresas FinTech. Estamos entusiasmados de jugar un rol similar en otros sectores importantes, contribuyendo a construir un sistema de apoyo para innovadores de salud en el país.

Armando Kuroda
CEO
Credilikeme

We are receiving help from the best. We learn from mentors whom you would usually have to pay to meet, like the head of PayPal Mexico, the Chief Innovation Officer of Gentera (Compartamos Banco), and the CTO for Banorte, to name a few of those who joined us for a mock board meeting. We are growing our contacts, getting press attention and attracting investment opportunities. Our customer segmentation has never been so sharp. Our unit economics are projected to the last cent. Our value proposition is as polished as a lieutenant’s shoe. We no longer who cares who wins. We all know who wins. We all do.

Óscar Robles
CEO
ePesos

Village Capital is our go-to for connections to funders and partners - they have an extensive network and do a fantastic job facilitating introductions to the industry. During their FinTech workshops, we made key decisions that have positively affected the growth and direction of ePesos. If we had not participated in the program, we would have definitely been out of the game.
