Our Purpose

With nearly 18 years of on-the-ground experience working in Latin America, we have witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by both businesses and investors in connecting with each other. 

Impactful businesses, whether in the startup or SME ecosystems, encounter numerous obstacles in accessing capital, including lack of networks, understanding of investors' requirements, and financial management capacity. 

Conversely, investors often struggle to identify potential investment opportunities aligned with their strategies and prepared to receive investment, leading to a significant funding gap for MSMEs in Latin America and the Caribbean, estimated by IADB to be $1.8 trillion. At AIP, we aim to address this challenge by effectively mobilizing capital towards impactful businesses while bridging the gap between supply and demand.

We firmly believe that providing access to well-structured capital and essential business strengthening support can empower businesses to generate both returns and positive impact on people and the planet, thereby enabling sustainable and inclusive development in Latin America.
