As Manager within the Village Capital’s Latin America team, Daniela has led the implementation of 12 acceleration programs and was previously involved in implementing another seven since 2017.

In 2023, she led the first accelerator of its kind with eight startups focused on reshaping consumer environments in Mexico, Chile, Colombia, and Argentina. This year, she is in charge of the second accelerator program which will support eight to ten different startups working on Optimizing the Harvest, Reshaping Consumer Environments, Maximizing Product Utilization and Recycling Anything Remaining.

Beyond the US: International Opportunities to Funding Food Waste Solutions

Breakout Session 3

What can we learn from organizations who are successfully scaling food waste solutions outside of the U.S., and what role does philanthropy play in elevating these efforts? From 2022-23, the Posner Foundation launched their first-ever food waste grantee cohort, focused on projects across the globe that are tackling upstream solutions through changing consumer behaviors. In this session, learn from organizations in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa about how they work to solve food waste in their respective communities, what lessons can be applied to the U.S. and other countries, and how philanthropy can support the growth of these international opportunities.
