Cuantico announces the first VC & Angel Investment training program in Central America

In the dynamic economic landscape of Central and Latin America, the rise of startups has captured the attention of investors and entrepreneurs alike. During the prosperous year 2022, the region invested more than $83 million in startups, marking an impressive milestone in the industry. This exponential growth is not a fluke, but rather the result of a trend that has seen 6x growth in the last 5 years.

What FUVECA Brings to the Table

Without a doubt, investing in startups has established itself as a promising opportunity to obtain significant financial returns. However, like any investment, it presents considerable risks. Only 1 in 10 startups achieve exponential success, underscoring the importance of an informed and strategic approach.

Faced with this exciting panorama, the need arises to have clear and well-founded information to successfully navigate the world of investments in startups. To address this challenge and answer the burning questions surrounding this ever-changing industry, Cuantico, a leader in the ecosystem, has announced the First Central American Venture Capital & Angel Investment Diploma (FUVECA).

This revolutionary diploma course aims to provide participants with a deep understanding of Venture Capital (VC) and angel investing. It is designed for anyone looking to get involved in the exciting and potentially lucrative arena of startup investing.

Diving into Venture Capital and Angel Investing

From an introduction to Venture Capital and the key concepts of VC investing, to the inner workings of Venture Capital funds and opportunities in angel investing. FUVECA will explore a wide range of topics crucial to investors of all experience levels. The analysis and valuation of startups, as well as the investment process and legal aspects, will also be covered in detail. In addition, the diploma course will dive into the importance of investment exits (exits) and liquidity, providing a comprehensive view of how investments materialize over time.

Jose Kont, managing partner at Cuantico, said: “Venture capital investment in our region is still in its early stages. To contextualize, in 2022, VC investment in Israel was equivalent to 1.94% of its GDP, while in LATAM it barely reached 0.19%. Despite being an emerging investment modality in the region, it has enormous potential to provide significant financial returns and encourage the development of more advanced societies by revitalizing traditional sectors. Specialized training is key to encourage more investors to support entrepreneurs, and that is precisely what we are looking for with this diploma."
