Agora Partnerships graduates 30 Latam and Caribbean startups targeting the Global Goals

ImpactAlpha, February 11 – Thirty startups working to advance the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals in Latin America and the Caribbean have completed Agora’s latest accelerator program. The graduates hail from 10 countries and include:

  • Ethical fashion company AHA Bolivia, which works with Bolivian artisans in support of SDG No. 8 (decent work and economic growth) and No. 12 (responsible consumption and production);
  • Chilean water tech company Capta Hydro that is working to improve water distribution and agricultural water use in support of SDG No. 2 (zero hunger) and No. 6 (clean water and sanitation); and,
  • Colombian beverage company D’CADA, which makes organic, sugar-free drinks to support SDG No. 3 (good health and well-being) and No. 12 (responsible consumption and production).

Information about the full cohort is here, and here in Spanish.

Agora has been working to build social entrepreneurship in Latin America and the Caribbean since 2011. It supports early ventures working towards raising investment capital of up to $100,000. The 215 companies that have graduated from the program have a 94% survival rate and have collectively raised $86 million. More than half have been women-run.

Agora is modifying the format of its 2019 cohort to focus more on growth-stage ventures.
