TEKA is one of Colombia’s leading private equity firms with an outstanding history and track record of investing in mid-market companies in the Andean region of South America. Between 2001 and 2008,  TEKA’s two founding partners, Diego Córdoba and Juan Antonio Pungiluppi, successfully managed and turned-around a portfolio of 15 companies within the Valorem Group, one of Colombia’s largest holding companies owned by the Santo Domingo family. They then established TEKA and raised a first private equity fund in 2011, employing the same hands-on investment approach, bringing fundamental change to portfolio companies. TEKA acquires family-owned, entrepreneur-led businesses which have a potential to take advantage of high growth opportunities in the region.
