We're exicted to announce that Monica Avila Forrero is now our head of operations in Colombia. Colombia has become an important country for Magma and our startups. Over the past two years, we've made one investment in Colombia and many of our portfolio companies are operating there. I wrote a longer post on my blog about why we're excited to get to know the Colombia entrepreneurial ecosystem even more:
I’m excited to welcome Mónica Ávila Forero to Magma to lead our Colombia team. Mónica, based in Bogota, has worked in the entrepreneurial ecosystem from all sides for the past 15 years: she’s started her own startups, worked with Ventures, a private NGO to build the Colombia ecosystem, and has worked closely with and mentored Colombia entrepreneurs, helping them figure out their business models, connect with potential investors and scale their businesses. I’m really excited to work with Mónica to help entrepreneurs in the Colombian market!
