“Debbie Jaffe, executive director of Endeavor Peru, pointed out that there is a very high risk from the capital market funds that invest in a startup. However, she estimated that the return on investment of this type of technological enterprise is of two years”, informed Gestión.
Jaffe said that in Peru there still isn’t a reference of angel investments or seed capital but there is an important number in investments on startups.
