IV. Facilitate Deal Flow

Facilitate deal flow by increasing market transparency and matching investor appetites with investable impact opportunities.  

The Amazon Investor Coalition promotes innovative funds, businesses, and project developers with nature-positive bioeconomy solutions that can outcompete the Amazon deforestation economy. Our impact thesis as an organization is to generate economic competitiveness for standing forests and biodiversity, while placing community wellbeing at the center. Together with global partners, we are fostering a Basin-wide alliance of Amazon entrepreneurship-strengthening organizations to mature the pipeline of nature-positive Amazon companies, and a deal flow system to match investors with investment-ready opportunities.

AMAZON-POSITIVE BUSINESSES

We are delighted to showcase 14 of Latam’s most promising nature-positive businesses, ready for their next stage of growth. This year, the Amazon Investor Coalition joined forces with Fundação CERTI in a strategic partnership to strengthen forest-positive entrepreneurship and help the Amazon region realize its full potential as the world’s largest sustainable and diverse bioeconomy. Together with CERTI, we issued an open call across Latin America for companies with solutions for protecting biodiversity, restoring natural ecosystems, and sustaining forest guardians. We received a total of 161 applications through our International Hub for Amazon Startups, and are excited to present 14 of the most promising investable businesses to our network of investors, donors, and corporations. These 14 represent a diverse range of solutions, from land restoration and food security, to super- nutrients and nano-cosmetics, to web3 and supply chain transparency, to remote sensing for rapid fire response. And more.

The partnership between the Amazon Investor Coalition (AIC) and the CERTI Foundation is supported by the UK Government’s Partnerships for Forests program.

AMAZON-POSITIVE FUNDS

A growing number of funds/vehicles are looking to deliver market rate returns alongside measurable impact linked to growing enterprises within the Amazon bioeconomy.  To support Amazon-positive deal flow, we have partnered with Capital for Climate to  curate an open-access database of “Amazon-serious funds”–investment funds with a serious Amazonian mandate and a proven track record.
