The Venture Capital & PE Industry in the Digital Age

We are in the best times of the human race for creating fast grow techn companies.

The low cost of technological developments and the advantages of the internet to generate scalable and replicable business models these days, have allowed to create companies, catalyze its expansion and reach billion dollar valuations in record times.

A classic example of this new business era is FACEBOOK, which launched in 2004, and raised its first round of investment in 2005 with Accel Partners, reached the stock market on 2012 with a US $ 100 billion valuation, equivalent to half the GDP of Chile, a company that did not exist 10 years ago.  Other examples in Latin America are Rappi, PedidosYa, Cornershop, Rappi, Nubank, 99.

These levels of Return on Investment (ROI) have attracted investors seeking scalable, replicable business, which usually have a technological component which gives them these features and a strong entrepreneurial team capable to perform the company expansion.

However few companies manages to make it through all stages and not all investments achieve expected returns.

While in countries like the United States venture capital industry required 80 years to develop, in Latin America venture capital are an emerging industry that offers an opportunity to high returns for investors who know how to invest in fast grow tech companies.
