Tech You Can Touch
About MiLA Capital
From 2015-2020, MiLA Capital leveraged extensive expertise in hyperscale, hardware, and finance to identify high-potential “tech you can touch” opportunities with attractive valuations. Through a deep network and hands-on operating strategy, MiLA partnered with founders to build capital-efficient businesses. 

UPDATE: While MiLA is no longer investing out of the hardware-focused fund, and the Make in LA accelerator program has been officially closed, our three partners remain active in supporting the MiLA portfolio and community, as well as the ecosystem. 


Noramay Cadena is currently building the venture firm, Supply Change Capital.


Shaun Arora is a coach for startups (including hardware and non-hardware) beginning their scale-up. More info can be found at his website, My Three Rocks.  

Carmen Palafox is currently building the venture firm 2045 Ventures.

MiLA Capital invested at the pre-seed and seed stage in five high-opportunity sectors in the United States, Latin America, and beyond:
Industry 01
Food Tech + Ag Tech
Industry 02
Industry 03
Mobility + Aerospace
Industry 04
Climate Tech
Industry 05
Health + Wellness
Our Lens
Our team seeks to catalyze systemic impact and change in the venture ecosystem - from the onboarding of diverse LPs, to the funding of diverse GPs, to investing in women and underrepresented founders and inspiring them to employ a diverse employee and supplier base.
MiLA Capital advocates for gender and racial diversity in our portfolio companies. Our outbound recruitment efforts target groups grossly underrepresented in venture - women, Latinx, Black and LGBTQIA founders.
