Ana: It’s great to be here, Spiffy! Winnipeg Ventures is launching the first educational technology (edtech) and future of work fund in Latin America. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for millions of children and adults by investing in technological innovations that will transform the way we learn, teach, and work. Can you imagine that eight out of every ten children under the age of ten in Latin America do not understand what they read? Did you know that half of the students who start college do not finish it? Or that only 30% of teachers in secondary schools meet standards for teaching? It’s not surprising that 60% of companies struggle to find the right talent. We aim to change the fate of Latin America by investing in amazing founders who are building child and human-centered technologies.
