🚀 Jet Set January! 🚀

Happy New Year!

How was your first month back at work? Ours found us ready for the opportunities and challenges this year will bring! 

At Capria Ventures, we managed to take a week-long break after Christmas, spend some time with our loved ones, and come back re-energized for 2024. Our team has hit the ground running, and the renewed energy is palpable. 

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from 2023 is that GenAI isn’t just a trend; it’s a seismic shift and will continue reshaping the startup game. 

Meme of the Month

2024 is the year of the AI pivot!

By investing in GenAI now, you are preparing your startup for a future teeming with possibilities. For 2024, GenAI isn’t just a must-have; it’s your startup’s ultimate game-changer.

GenAI Showcase

Our portfolio companies are not just early adopters of this tech but are cruising on the GenAI highway like a batmobile. 

Our inside catchphrase in the office is, “Not all heroes wear capes; some just leverage AI”! One such superstar pushing the boundaries by making Africa greener and carbon-free is our portfolio company Faradai. In fact, DecarbonAI, Faradai’s AI-powered decarbonization co-pilot, is harnessing the power of AI for companies to achieve sustainability.

Meet Africa’s rising TR(AI)LBLAZER, Faradai! 

Partner Insights

Peter Drucker wisely said, ‘The best way to predict the future is to create it.’ 

The future is GenAI. Our AI Evangelist-in-Chief Will Poole believes that startups that ignore the AI opportunity will lose out to incumbents who work with the technology from day one. Leveraging this technology is a must-do for startups.

Read this article to learn how our portfolio companies are driving the GenAI revolution.

January was also super special because our Managing Partner Susana Garcia-Robles was recognized as one of the Top Women Investing in Latin American Tech by LAVCA. Susana has been on this list every year since 2016, and we are proud of her exceptional contribution to the startup ecosystem in the Global South!
