“We are very pleased with the results of this fundraise,” said Honorio Poblador, Managing Partner, Navegar. “The success of this effort is all the more notable given that our final close was held in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. We greatly appreciate the confidence and trust of our investors.”

“We are very pleased to announce the oversubscrisbed final closing of Fund II.
