Latine-founded companies see funding plummet

Earlier this week, we posted an article about a November 12 event from Let Her Speak and Latinas Time. The timing of the event comes as Crunchbase News reports that funding to U.S.-based Latine-founded companies plummeted more than 80 percent in the third-quarter of 2022, both quarter over quarter and year over year.

Q3 saw $250 million invested in Latine-founded companies, compared to $1.3 billion in the second quarter, and $2.3 billion in the third quarter of 2021. This pullback in funding to Latine founders in the U.S. took a sharper downward turn than the broader slowdown in venture capital in the U.S. market, which was down more than 50 percent year over year for funding this past quarter.
