Post: 2019 Was a Record Year for VC Funding in Emerging Markets

By Mary Ann Azevedo

Last year marked records for venture investment in a number of emerging private capital markets, including Africa, Southeast Asia, Latin America, India and CEE and CIS , according to a recent report by EMPEA.

In fact, venture capital in emerging markets has more than doubled (in dollar terms) to $27.4 billion in 2019 compared to $12.6 billion in 2014, the report said.

New York-based EMPEA describes itself as the global industry association for private capital in emerging markets. The nonprofit organization brings together more than 300 firms — including institutional investors, fund managers and industry advisers — who manage more than $5 trillion in assets across 130 countries.
