Deep knowledge
in technology, internet, media and green tech, based on 50+ years of combined experience in building, investing, managing and providing advice.
Leverage network of contacts
in the region and in developed markets to fully exploit the potential of the venture. These contacts can catalyze the growth of the business in one or more areas such as sales, technology, product design and development, marketing, and finance.
Established presence and relationships with other VC firms in the region and the US
in order to jointly invest in opportunities and also as a launching pad for investments to move beyond Latin America.

Our Strategy

Enzyme Venture Capital aims to become a two-way bridge between Latin American and US entrepreneurs, projects and financing.

We focus on technology, Internet, new media and sustainable energy projects that either target Latin America as a market or that have Latin American talent inside.

Investment Focus

We will invest in the sectors that we have proven expertise, deep passion and a vast network of contacts to leverage upon.

  • We are actively looking for early-stage investment opportunities that sit at the crossroads of technology, Internet, new media and sustainable energy projects.

  • With ubiquitous connectivity, and an ever-increasing storage and processing capacity that provides tremendous scalability, there will be many opportunities to exploit new business models that take end consumer interaction with media and technology to the next level.

  • We are convinced that Latin America has the right resources, timing and skills to bring to the world a batch of successful companies and we would like to be part of it.
