Latino equity and leadership across areas of impact are primary investment considerations

US Latinos must have significant ownership of the business, currently defined as greater than 25% (collectively, if there are multiple Latino co-founders/owners). Most companies in our pipeline will exceed this ownership threshold.

We invest in US Latino entrepreneurs who are operating in the US. Companies can have sales globally, but the source of talent, operational leadership, and thought leadership, for example, should be US-based and consistent with our mission and desired impact.

We prioritize technology-based solutions in key areas of impact

Workforce Development

Strengthening US workforce participation and success, including retraining workers


Healthy Communities

Improving physical, mental, social, and environmental health, through innovation in healthcare services, food production and access, transportation, and the environment


Media and E-Commerce

Capturing the mobile-first driven evolution in media and e-commerce and its effect on economic growth and progress


Educational Attainment

Bolstering the educational tools and journeys of students, educators, and parents and reducing inefficiencies and obstacles in both the access to and cost of education


New Economy Services

Tech-enabling traditional analog businesses and services, small and large; delivering innovative technology to all communities


Financial Advancement

Engineering the Future

Data Analytics

Our Criteria

Our investment criteria are consistent with our mission to catalyze the growth and success of US Latino entrepreneurs, close funding shortfalls at the early yet critical stages of development, and, thereby, reduce disparities in income while advancing job creation, wealth generation, educational attainment, and economic progress for all Americans.
