This was a big week inside the Boardroom – we had a couple great interviews, including the one I’m going to recap today!
This past Tuesday we talked about… GOLD!!! Jeff and I were mesmerized to hear about the wild journey of how the budding startup Madre Tierra is leaving its mark on the gold industry in Colombia.
If you missed that conversation you have to go back and listen to it here.
Nevertheless, here we are 3+ days away from the Madre interview and I CANNOT stop thinking about some of the amazing things the company is doing. Here are three of the biggest takeaways for me:
1. The Colombian government is supporting Canadian-incorporated Madre Tierra and its efforts – say what??? Yes, this is BIG NEWS because they only give a select number of licenses to companies and Madre Tierra has one of those licenses!
Even in the chat during the interview, some of you were asking questions about geopolitical issues and political unrest in a country like Colombia (which I thought were great questions by the way). But, I like the response Sahsa Kaplun — CEO/Founder – gave in response to the questions. You can see his response here at the 28:25 mark.
2. Madre Tierra is really helping the “local guy.” Its business model is very different from the large gold mining operations that basically RIP THROUGH the earth and leave a massive wake of destruction. They are working with small local family-owned mining companies to move the economic needle for the smaller miners.
A simplified example is that they can buy gold at a discount from the local miners (it’s still a huge win for the miners) and then quickly send that gold off to be refined and realize a fairly quick return on profits. This is incredible because from what I gather most mining operations don’t see profit – maybe years or perhaps never. Sasha shares how the whole process works when it comes to the local miners around the 6:40 mark
3. Finally, Madre just had its inaugural shipment of gold leave Colombia – which from what Sasha said on the call will return over $100k in profit. Again – I can’t emphasize enough, seeing revenue like this in a “gold mining” operation that isn’t that old, is pretty remarkable. You can hear that exciting news at the 26:33 mark.

These are just a few highlights from our time with Sasha. I’m serious, if you missed this interview take some time and watch this thing back.
Also, the other exciting part is that you can become a shareholder in Madre Tierra.
I’m encouraging you to check out its offering HERE and do some digging to see if adding this to your portfolio is right for you.
Okay — keep your eyes peeled for more great information on Madre Tierra and other exciting startups moving the needle in the world of private equity.
Until next time, have an awesome weekend.
