GIST Investors is launching in Mexico City later this month in order to support the rapidly growing network of angel investors and venture capitals firms in the Mexican startup ecosystem.
The GIST Investors Mobilization Training, or GIST Investors, helps create sustainable investment networks in emerging economies. The program also collaborates with in-country stakeholders to bolster local financial support for science and technology startups.
GIST Investors Mexico will partner with Angel Ventures Mexico , a local firm that has achieved more than $14 million USD in investments since 2008.
The first training on September 20 will include topics such as deal sourcing, investment process and portfolio management. The training will also simulate for investors how to make a deal with a science and technology startup.
Mexico City is becoming a center for entrepreneurship innovation, activity and investment in Latin America. In fact, according to the Financial Times, the number of venture capitals firms grew from just eight in 2008 to more than 60 in 2016. The increase is likely do to a combination of talent, support and capital – which makes Mexico City an attractive place for innovative entrepreneurs to start their business.
GIST Investors is implemented in partnership with VentureWell, which helps provide the training and connections necessary for local investors to thrive.
