Description

VCFamilia is a free community that helps Latinx venture capital investors get visibility in the industry and increase representation in investment roles.

If you identify yourself as Latinx and work in VC, you are eligible to enter the community's Slack group. Inside, you will be able to connect with like-minded people worldwide, get career advice, find job opportunities, and share knowledge with others. Additionally, VCFamilia is constantly organizing events such as webinars, inviting guest speakers, and hosting in-person meetups for members to expand their professional network.

On the other hand, if you are an ally but you don't identify yourself as Latinx, you can enter a LinkedIn group. This is for people who support the cause of creating an open and inclusive environment for current and future Latinx investors to thrive.

VCFamilia brings Latinx cultures into the venture capitalist ecosystem and increases representation in investment roles. Indeed, members can opt to appear in the community's public members directory. This directory is very useful, especially for founders who are looking for venture capitalists that match their company. Latinx VCs can also benefit from this directory, exploring it to find like-minded people to connect with.
