IGNIA is a venture capital investment firm that supports promising, scalable enterprises serving the needs of low-income populations in Latin America.

Why We Invested

Based in Monterrey, Mexico, IGNIA invests in high-growth entrepreneurs in emerging Latin American markets. By supporting entrepreneurs that have the potential to develop profitable businesses, IGNIA addresses issues of poverty with scalable solutions that have the potential to serve the needs of millions of poor people. These solutions simultaneously generate attractive financial returns for investors.

IGNIA’s key objective is to identify high-impact entrepreneurs with scalable businesses that provide core goods or services to low-income communities. IGNIA’s investments prioritize markets that have a disproportionate impact on the welfare of the poor, such as healthcare, housing, basic utilities, and education.
