ABOUT US

Rose Hill Acquisition Corporation is a US$143 Million Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) listed on Nasdaq under the ticker ROSEU. Our goal is to partner with one Latin American company to provide growth capital, strategic advisory, and a US listing avenue.

We believe the Rose Hill team’s decades of experience and know-how operating, investing in, and advising public multibillion-dollar companies across Latin America offers great value to private companies interested and seeking a public listing. We are confident that with the SPAC vehicle, the growth path of a diverse base of public-ready and high-growth private companies in the region that may face hurdles when pursuing equity capital through traditional avenues, could be accelerated.

We know how the industry operates, so we strategically formed a management team and board with extensive experience investing, deal-making, and operating across Latin America, plus sponsors that are experts in the SPAC product and investing in Latin America.

MISSION

Creating a true solution in Latin America

Rose Hill provides a U.S. listing opportunity and an injection in capital to businesses that, due to their size and operating geography, would otherwise have significant difficulty in both given the lack of late-stage private capital financing, local capital market inefficiencies, and insufficient access to American markets for Latin American businesses.
