E022: Jeep Kline: MrPink’s VC
April 1, 2021
We are a seed fund that invests in technology startup companies, located in Colombia, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay, that address global challenges. We believe that technology investment should not be confined to mainstream hubs like Silicon Valley, London, or Beijing. It is our mission to bring technology access and economic prosperity to Latin America through investment. The initial portfolio of 20 companies will benefit from MrPink’s Venture Design & Growth Playbook, leveraging our experience by building, investing and refining over 40 startups, producing 10x returns and multiple exits. Our partners and diverse leadership team have brought together decades of hands-on experiences to invest in high-quality entrepreneurs and help them succeed along the growth journey.
