"It's exciting to see the number of top funders and venture capital groups investing in Latino startups grow! "  "It's exciting to see the number of top funders and venture capital groups investing in Latino startups grow!" In 2020, we started Angeles Investors with the goal of making the venture capital industry aware of all the Latino startup community has to offer. Fast forward two years, we now have a list of 40 Estrellas who are helping us to achieve this goal, and we're just getting started," said  Adela Cepeda, Angeles Investors Board Chair and Director at BMO Financial Corporation . It's been a priority of Chingona Ventures to provide access and opportunity to the Latino startup community, where gaining access to funding — the necessary fuel to grow their companies – is a constant struggle. "I've been fortunate to benefit from having the Latinx community support me in the early days of raising a fund, including many Angeles members. We need organizations like ours to invest and support the startup community where founders receive less than 1% of all venture capital funding," said Samara Mejia Hernandez, Founding Partner at Chingona Ventures. Nominations for the Angeles Estrellas award are solicited from Angeles members , partners and the general public. Awardees are evaluated on the quantity of startups invested in, total dollars invested and their commitment to the Hispanic and Latinx startup ecosystem. SOURCE Angeles Investors
