The sixteenthlargest bank in the US had to be shut down by US authorities in early March because its investment strategy had failed. Funding for financial technology fintech companies with headquarters in Latin America and the Caribbean decreased 71%, from a peak of $13.9 billion in 2021 to $4 billion in 2022, according to CB Insight. The third major blow came with the SVB collapse since the bank caters to tech firms. The CEO of the technological business Torre, which receives investment from SpaceX and Apple, Alexander Torrenegra, agrees.

Nigeria has established a $672 million fund to support its tech startups, with the goal of reducing reliance on startup funding from the United States. The fund is intended to assist young entrepreneurs aged 15 to 35 who have had difficulty raising capital in the creative and technology sectors.
