WHY COLOMBIA

After 60 years of war, a new era of peace building brings unprecedented opportunities. Building an inclusive economy that empowers all 50 million Colombians is critical to avoid descending back into war

 

Colombia offers unparalleled opportunities given by:

  • GDP per capital that has tripled since 2000

  • Stable inflation and unemployment rate

  • Becoming a leader in investor protection in LatAm

‘Peace in Colombia provides an opportunity to show the world that it is possible to heal through inclusion and equitable development.’
Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group

PURPOSE

We build an inclusive and sustainable post-conflict Colombia by investing in companies that solve complex social problems for the majority. We focus on full-stack businesses that open access to essential services, economic opportunities and a sustainable environment to women, marginalised populations and conflict victims.

Makondo targets businesses that have:

  • A proven business model

  • Demonstrated product market fit

  • Generating social impact

  • Large addressable market

  • Diverse team with key expertise

  • Disruptive market approach
