Co-Founder and Managing Partner, Kaszek Ventures
Hernan Kazah is a passionate advocate of entrepreneurship. He cofounded MercadoLibre, the most successful “from-garage-to-Nasdaq” startup story in Latin America to date, and it’s now one of the largest companies in the region.
After its IPO, Hernan cofounded Kaszek Ventures to give back to the startup community of which he was such an integral part. He wanted to provide other entrepreneurs with the mentorship, network, support, encouragement and capital that he had struggled to access when he first began.
In the decade since, Hernan has overseen Kaszek’s growth into the largest venture capital firm in Latin America, with over US$2b in raised capital. It has invested in more than 75 startups and is known for its ability to spot the next tech talent and hands-on approach.
Hernan actively participates in events designed to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs, and he dedicates his time and resources to support various organizations that promote entrepreneurship.
Hernan was selected as EY Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 Argentina.
