What does it mean to grant “unfair” access to a region? That’s what Wind Ventures, the venture capital arm of Chilean energy company Copec, wants to do for its portfolio companies wanting exposure to the Latin American market. With a wide remit that primarily straddles energy and mobility, Wind has been bullish on the energy transition and EV charging, among a number of other focus areas including logistics and retail experience.

Brian Walsh, head of Wind Ventures, came on the Global Venturing Review to talk about, among other things, what it’s like to invest globally on behalf of a Latin American corporate and integrate portfolio companies into the regional market, how Wind’s venture investment side collaborates and balances the venture building side, and where to draw the line between a venture play and an infrastructure play in the context of EV charging.
