Latitud Ventures leads pre-seed rounds across Latin America and is the ideal first-check partner for top emerging founders in the region.

The Latitud Ventures Manifesto

Which fundraising path to take? Here's our perspective on why raising a pre-seed as a first round can put LatAm founders in a better position.

US$200k towards your pre-seed

We invest early and with standard founder-friendly terms, so you start off on the right foot. We back a handful of startups from the Latitud community each quarter.

Hands-on support

As you venture into building and scaling your startup, we provide access to world-class mentors and VCs and share what we learned over decades of experience about product, leadership and growth.

Help closing your seed round

When it's time to raise money again, we'll connect you to the right top investors and walk side by side to help you close your next round in the best way.

Latitud has been almost like a co-founder of BHub. Yuri Danilchenko became a mentor to us as we built the product, Tomi Roggio helped us fundraise our Seed and Series A rounds, and Brian Requarth spent several hours supporting the team. Latitud was also our first customer and helped develop the service. It has been with us since day 1.

We started talking to Latitud when we weren’t even a company; we were just 3 folks with an idea. We went through the fellowship, which was very helpful, and Latitud became our first investor. They were instrumental in helping us access more funds, and connecting us with a wide, international, and high-caliber investor community. It had a huge impact on our fundraising process.

I wish I had Latitud when I started working as an entrepreneur back in 2013. I would’ve made a lot fewer mistakes. The community is so powerful and the flywheel effect that it generates is amazing. As a B2B marketplace, we were able to sell solutions to this ecosystem by being a part of Latitud and pitch live to 1,000+ people at Vamos Latam Summit.
