We need help!



Despite the title, this is not the MIF’s latest fundraising tactic or our new recruiting strategy. This is how NXTP Labs’ co-founder Gonzalo Costa ended his presentation at the MIF’s headquarters in Washington, DC yesterday afternoon. The title may very well sum-up the state of our region’s ecosystem for early stage investing: it needs help. The region still falls short on many aspects, starting by a culture that fears and denies failure, an insufficient number of role models, few specialized service providers and seasoned early stage investors. The good news is that investment models that help address some of these challenges, such as the one proposed by NXTP Labs or the Brazilian21212 accelerator, are appearing in the region and being well received by regional markets.
