Impacta VC, the Chilean venture capital fund that invests in socially impactful companies, is launching its second funding program for Latin American startups, starting on August 1st. The program has limited spots and a selection process. The goal of the Impacta Fundraising Strategy Program (IFSP) is to double the impact of its previous edition by activating and boosting the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Latin America. 

The program is designed and delivered by successful founders, serial entrepreneurs, and ecosystem leaders. It aims to teach startups from across the region how to navigate the venture capital game and raise capital through tools and knowledge, enabling them to design their own fundraising strategies for pre-seed, seed, or pre-Series A rounds.

The IFSP 2023 will be conducted online and span three months, with two sessions per week lasting one and a half hours each. Selected startups will pay a monthly fee of $150. As part of this edition, the #IFSP23 will feature two parallel projects aimed at promoting female inclusion, financial inclusion, and innovation among participating startups. 

The “Protagonismo femenino en #IFSP” initiative will involve influential women in the ecosystem who will support the participation of startups founded by women in the #IFSP2023, fostering greater gender equality within the program. The “Impacta Live Project” will select three startups with a high probability of successfully raising funds through crowdfunding and showcase their live funding rounds.
