In our new article series, we introduce the most exciting venture capital firms that are open for LP investments to our family office network. The article belongs to our exclusive single family office guidebook, where we give guidance on the most relevant topics for newly established and already existing family investment vehicles.
In this article, we talked to Latin Leap Ventures, a Latin America-based venture capital fund that currently manages investments worldwide and partners with purpose-driven companies that are looking to get into the Latam market. We decided to get in touch with Latin Leap due to their interesting purpose-driven tech focus and their aim to become a key player in the economic development of the regions they invest in.
Familyofficehub.io (FO): Briefly describe your focus: in which kind of startups are you investing, where is your geographical focus, what’s your average ticket size?
Latin Leap: Latin Leap is a Venture Capital Studio that was established to create a unique investment platform to soft-land purpose-driven tech companies in Latin America. We are a sector-agnostic fund, but core verticals include Agtech, Edtech, Fintech, Healthtech, HR tech, and Mobility.
Our average ticket size per investment is around USD 2M.
FO: What are exciting companies in your portfolio – and why?
Latin Leap: Some exciting companies in our portfolio include Dimuto, a Singapore-based agri-food trade tech solutions platform, and Talkpush, a Hong Kong-based recruitment platform.
These companies are pioneering the digitalization of supply chains and recruitment processes in Latin America, an emerging market where most traditional business processes remain largely manual and labor-intensive. They are introducing tech solutions to improve lives, businesses, and productivity, and we are very excited as they continue on their growth paths in the region.
Our key persons have a strong individual track record of early local venture investing in Latin America.
FO: Why should a family office invest in Latin Leap as LP?
Latin Leap: Family offices should consider Latin Leap as we are committed to empowering and uplifting Latin American society through the soft-landing of technology in the region.
Through the deployment of international tech scale-ups and knowledge-intensive businesses, we hope to provide greater access, promote entrepreneurship, and foster education while at the same time taking equity positions in holding companies from Asia and gaining exposure to liquid exit markets. Family offices with a keen interest in pioneering and contributing to the development of emerging markets should contact our team of proven entrepreneurs, venture investors, and private equity executives.
FO: Are you also open to investments from European family offices?
Latin Leap: Yes we are. We are keen to work together with European family offices to keep growing our investment portfolio.
FO: Thanks for your time!
