Venture Backed in Latin America: A Booming Ecosystem
As the Venture Capital (VC) ecosystem continues to experience strong growth globally, even despite the pandemic, it is important to call attention to a new promising player, LatAm.
Latin America has historically played a secondary role in the VC ecosystem, as investors were risk averse and considered LatAm as high risk, with few mega startup wins to showcase. Luckily, as shared in a recent blog post from Pablo Schaar, this seems to be changing as developing countries such as Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Colombia, and Chile are currently experiencing a positive momentum that is serving to foster trust in the region while nurturing the necessary talent for entrepreneurial ventures to scale.
New year, new curriculum - 2022 is right around the corner.
We’re excited to announce that this October (available October 4, 2021), in concert with the start of registration for our March 2022 exam cycle, we’ll be rolling out our latest round of curriculum updates for both Level I and Level II.
Level I will feature new and extended topics that better reflect the role of private capital in today’s institutional portfolios, while Level II will include additional content about the broadening investor base for alternative investments and the tools now available for allocators. Both will be offered to Candidates via our new digital-first format (available for purchase in digital OR digital + print).*
