The Global Emerging Market Story: A White Paper Report
April 10, 2021 | Ashley Brindamour
In this recent white paper, we explore the trends, opportunities, and challenges of venture investing in international emerging markets. We postulate that emerging markets offer a promising venture investment opportunity of reasonable valuations, diversification across geographies, and leapfrogging into the world’s fastest-growing areas, both technologically and demographically.
In summary, we think the opportunity is profound. In fact, it’s the focus for Alumni Ventures’ new Emerging Markets Fund, where we will invest in a portfolio of ~20-30 deals from outside the typical three-point VC market of San Francisco, NYC, and Boston — both in the U.S. and abroad. Here we explore the markets region by region and then summarize the pros and cons of venture investing in emerging markets.
