With more than 5,000 employees, Movile is one of the largest tech investment groups in the region. iFood, a Brazilian food delivery platform, and Zoop, a fintech, are among its popular affiliates.
Movile says it would persuade Zoop and iFood to expand operations to more countries in the region. It similarly widened the footprints of Colombian delivery platform Mensajeros Urbanos and Argentina’s Moova, after making follow-on investments in them.
“Seeing the success of companies like iFood in Latin America has empowered so many new, innovative founders to rise up and join the burgeoning tech ecosystem in the region,” said Patrick Hruby, CEO of Movile.
