In SVX MX (Social Venture Exchange Mexico) we seek to ensure capital serves humanity and the life of the planet.

We are impact investment advisors for Mexico and Latin America. We educate, cultivate and connect social and environmental impact investments, NGOs, government and investors. Since 2015, we are building the holistic investment bank for Latin America, are impact ecosystem builders and host the Regenerative Investments Hub in Mexico.

Beyond transactions, SVX facilitates win-win relationships where incentives are properly aligned, investors can become partners and investments can build the best version of the world for all.
We believe in the power of networks and have strong allies, and mentors, globally that actively support and participate in the services provided by SVX MX. SVX MX has a Canadian partner SVX.CA and a U.S. partner SVX.US.

We improve

the investment process for all those involved, by facilitating WIN-WIN transactions where incentives are properly aligned for all
