Latin America was one of the fastest growing regions for VC in the world over 2020 and 2021. Then the VC market cratered in 2022. But does the fall in global funding signal the end of the era of overvaluations and easy money? And is this the recalibration the venture capital scene needs? Expect brutally honest industry analysis from the world’s top investors.

Rewriting the venture playbook

What does the next decade hold for VC funding? A drive for diversity, sustainability and being socially responsible means the individuals and companies investing – and being invested in – are rapidly changing. We hear from leading voices on how these emerging trends are shaping the founder-investor dynamic.
