Aureos Central America Growth Fund (Emerge) offers equity capital and convertible debt financing to the lower end of the SME segment in Central America and the Dominican Republic. The fund has a total capital of NOK 121 million. Our main co investors are CDC, FMO and MIF. The fund invests exclusively in enterprises that fulfil the criteria as an SME. Increased access to venture capital is intended to allow the enterprises to expand, and thereby recruit more labour. This will in turn produce positive ripple effects throughout Central American economies.
