Latin investors in private venture capital increase by 36% during 2022 in the USA
Over 80% of non-partner Latin investors who joined the industry joined institutional firms. As a result, of all Latinos in the industry, the share of those in institutional firms increased from 41% to 54%.
A study by the LatinxVC organization, managed by several directors of venture capital firms, determined that during 2022 there was a 36% growth in investment in private venture capital from Latin America.
Although this figure did not generate the desired improvements, since the percentage of participation of Latinos in the industry is still only 2%, it is an encouraging precedent for the goal of reversing that percentage and boosting participation throughout the industry.
“While the percentage has stayed the same, we saw the absolute numbers increase from 145 last year to 197 investment professionals this year. Given the small base, Latin investors are still 2% of the industry relative to 19 % of the US population”, assured from LatinxVC.
Increase in non-partner investors in institutional funds
The study was also able to determine other improvements that occurred during 2022. Among them, an increase in non-member investors in institutional funds (of more than $100 million) which allowed Latinos to go from 1% to 2% representation.
In addition, the total number of non-partner venture capital investors increased from 24 to 57 (+138%), increasing by 1% compared to 2021.
“We are cautiously optimistic that we are making progress in getting more talent into the industry, although these numbers were offset by non-partners in emerging funds which decreased from 42 to 30 as several non-partners in emerging funds moved to the operating side. This means that we must double the retention and support of Latino talent in emerging funds”, they assured from the organization.
