During the recent Endeavor Experience held in Buenos Aires, Hernán Kazah, co-founder of Kaszek Venture Capital, stated that things will improve for startups and investors by 2024.

According to Bloomberg Línea, Kazah explained during a press dialogue that the venture capital climate has changed drastically. He compared it to a pendulum, swinging between extreme optimism and total pessimism about technology and its value.

Kazah believes that for the sector to regain a positive outlook, gradual changes are needed, where some start to become more optimistic or see very low prices.

Looking ahead to 2024, Kazah predicts that many companies that received funding but failed to capitalize on it due to lengthy projects will face challenges in the coming year. However, he also assured that things are gradually moving in the right direction.

In April, Kaszek Venture Capital announced a new $1 billion fund.
