I met Adrian Garcia several years ago when he worked at MesoAmerica, perhaps the first venture capital firm in Central America. I would also point out that Adrian is a graduate of the MIT Sloan School, so we have some other shared interests.
Recently Adrian and a partner, Allan Boruchowitz, founded Carao Ventures, a venture capital firm that specializes in early stage tech companies targeting the Latin American market. What differentiates Carao from most VCs is their approach, which I quote below:
"Carao Ventures has an early stage startup program where one of our partners takes an active role in the startup through the next stage of company development, participating in relevant roles such as strategy, finance, marketing and others."
Carao is headquartered in San Jose, Costa Rica.
