Latin America

In 2004, SEAF launched the Trans-Andean Early-Stage Fund (TAF), an umbrella fund to invest in small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Latin America. TAF made direct investments in promising SMEs, in addition to supporting two country-specific funds—the Fondo Transandino Peru (FTP), and the Fondo Transandino Colombia (FTC), which were founded in 2004 and 2005 respectively. In 2008, as our original funds in the region became fully invested, SEAF sponsored two additional funds to further expand existing portfolio companies and to invest in new opportunities in Peru and Colombia. These new funds, the Latam Growth Fund and the Latam Peru Fund, enable SEAF to continue to extend essential expansion capital to SMEs in the region.
