We launched 3 pilot accelerators this year and will offer 4 more accelerators across Europe, Asia, Africa, and America in 2017. This is the summary report for the Latin America Startup Ecosystem.
The intense nature of the business boot camp is to provide tactics, strategies and top learnings around building a company while leveraging free resources. From Y-Combinator’s free 10 week online program to raising millions with database searches to coding an MVP – the program covered many areas.On both days we had exeptional keynote presentations.
The keynote series was then followed up with a 1-hour pitch demo of the top 10 companies selected from the program. Each company had 1 minute to pitch their company with slide show presentations and receive q/a from our guest judges (representing SeedStars, Singularity, and ASEP). It was a tough competition but the top three winners are CommunidadFeliz, Ifurniture and Lecto Geeks. The popular vote was won by enjoy market.
