Salkantay focuses on high financial return and impact opportunities in Peruvian companies expanding abroad and in global companies expanding to the Pacific Alliance. The fund capitalizes on regional trends to fill the VC gap in the “missing middle”, helping entrepreneurs create value as they expand across markets and grow their footprint and investor base.
Salkantay's current fund is a multi-sector fund with a main focus on solving big regional challenges with technology in sectors like fintech, e-commerce, smart cities and logistics, Saas / B2B, edtech and healthtech, among others. It will invest in 14-20 startups with an average ticket size starting at $0.5m and up to $5m, including follow-on investments. A multi-country fund, with an expected mix of 50% in Peru and 50% in the rest of the Pacific Alliance is what Salkantay is looking to build in the upcoming years.
