As one of the first founders funds of the region, Bridge Latam aims to be the best early stage fund for the new generation of entrepreneurs. We decided to start a tradition this year by asking our team and partners for predictions of the year. We hope to include new respondents each year and within time this publication could provide an interesting landscape of what are the forecasts of entrepreneurs all around the region for the year to come. The idea is to have a perspective about the venture capital ecosystem in the region, economy in general and some social/political views. Also we want to keep track of how predictions turn out to be, so next year this publication would also include right and wrong forecasts of the year that just ended. with no further due this is our 2024 predictions:
