Hernan is a CoFounder and Managing Partner at Angel Ventures (AV), a leading VC Fund in Latin America. Hernan launched the first professionally managed Angel Investor Network in Mexico in 2008 that later evolved into a Venture Capital Fund manager, with over 60 investments in different industries for well over USD 100M. Currently, AV is raising its third Fund, and has operations in Mexico City, Guadalajara, Bogota, Colombia and Lima, Peru, consolidating Angel Ventures as a leading fund for early stage financing in Latin America.
For Hernan, access to democratic capital in Latin America has always been a key driver in what he does, empowering the smartest people to go after the boldest problems, and making Latin America a better place in the process through a renewed offering of products and services powered by technology. In Hernan's view, Venture Capital will continue to be human centric, and Angel Ventures will always look for best in class experience for Founders, Team members, LPs and all its stakeholders alike.
