Play • 20 min

IFC talks to Santiago Zavala about his journey to becoming an investor focused on Latin American start-ups and why other venture capital investors should put the region on their radar. When he started a guitar-related online forum in the early 2000s, Zavala didn’t expect to find himself where he is today. Although he still actively codes, he’s now widely known as one of the main community builders and investors in Spanish-speaking Latin America. Together with his team, the 34-year-old runs the 500 Luchadores funds and is a partner of 500 Startups. In this episode, he speaks to Creating Markets about the potential of Latin American markets.
