I am very happy to report that Sirena, one of our investments, has been acquired by Zenvia, a great Brazilian company which is the leading communication platform in Latin America. This is a great result for Sirena, its founders and its investors!
Sirena was founded by Migue Morkin, Lautaro Schiaffino, Eze Sculli and Julian Bender. After some pivots over the years, Sirena became a SaaS tool to digitize business teams to sell and carry out customer service via messaging apps. You can read more about Sirena, Zenvia and the acquisition here.
At Dalus we led the Series A financing round in Sirena in 2018. Two years later the company has been acquired by a regional strategic player, providing a successful exit for founders and investors. Another example that validates that the tech startup ecosystem and the venture capital model work in Latin America (including during a pandemic).
We will see many more exits in Latin America in the near-term future, as strategic buyers see the market potential that tech startups have in a post-COVID world.
