Venture capital firms were announcing new funds as the market tanked. A $50 million second investment was formed by Chalo Ventures general partner Haris Khurshid with a primary focus on Pakistani businesses and a secondary focus on startups in Latin America.
Accumulation Of Cash And Commitments.
The company began gathering money a few months ago and has already accumulated cash and commitments totaling $35 million. Khurshid stated that he intends to begin investing as well as effectuate the transaction. The explicit objective of investing in Pakistan was what made a difference. He did mention that LPs needed to understand how the firm might handle investments in that market, so the company had to educate them on the necessity for a specific fund in Pakistan.
Current Financial Crisis And Its Impact
One of the managing partners of the 10-year-old early-stage VC firm Alaya Capital, based in Argentina, Lorena Suarez, invests in impact-driven entrepreneurs in Spanish-speaking Latin America. The initial closure of Alaya’s third fund’s $80 million in capital commitments took place last month as per venturehalltechcrunch.
Suarez stated via email that LPs were unsure of the strength of the LatAm economy’s business fundamentals. Due diligence is therefore taking more time, although it hasn’t yet affected their final commitments. Concern has been expressed concerning the severity of the current financial crisis and the likely impact it will have in the coming years in Europe.
