LatinFinance: Who are your angel investors?Fernández: Many of the investors in the US and Europe are fintech executives who have exited, but this is not the case in Mexico or the rest of Latin America. We mainly have executives of large companies who have disposable income and were entrepreneurs at some time. The individual angels have investments of $25,000 and $50,000. We can fund projects from $250,000 or more, which makes us relevant because with co-investment we can leverage up to $2 million. LF: How many investors do you have?HF: The network has 250 angels in the region, but the number is not really as important as the investment. LF: How many requests are there from fintechs
The co-founder and managing partner of Angel Ventures Mexico spoke to LatinFinance about the role of venture capital and angel investors in Latin America.
