Latin America Startup Ecosystem

Accelerator Pilot Report

About:

Latin America Startup Ecosystem: Is the digital accelerator flagship program for the Latin American region under global subsidiary- Global Startup Ecosystem (GSE). The network hosts the largest online 3 day digital accelerator program for entrepreneurs residing in or affiliated with the Central and South America. The network also provides regional tech summits, ecosystem programs, boot camps, ecosystem tours, and initiatives to accelerate innovation and ecosystem development under GSE sponsorship.

 

Press Release Announcement:

In an effort to increase exposure of Latin America startups to global investors and resources, Latin America Startup Ecosystem announced the launch of the first digital accelerator for the region. The accelerator program begins with a full startup development boot camp covering ideation, product development, marketing, customer acquisition, and funding. The boot camp is then followed by workshop keynotes from Lean Launchpad, Forbes list entrepreneurs, and key investors. The program concludes with a demo day where the top ten companies pitch in front of judges from across the region for top prizes.

”The future is digital, so startup ecosystems in emerging markets need to take advantage of that with programs like this one” says Christine Souffrant Ntim, “we launched digital accelerators for entrepreneurs of Latin America to close the resource gap and diversify global startup success stories”. The pilot accelerator program launches on December 5-6, 2016 and will accept 100 startups.

Latin America Startup Ecosystem

Accelerator Pilot Report

The Applicant Pool: Over 61% of the companies were founded within the past two years. Industries represented included,  e-commerce, education, social apps, transportation, communications, and travel. Founders came from over 11+ different countries with the top 3 represented were Chile, Peru and Mexico. 

In seeing the great resources provided within the region, Latin America Startups surveyed the applicant pool to determine the top needs and interests pertaining to startup development. As expected funding and customer acquisition was the most requested topic for mentorship. Since we customize programming based on applicant needs, we provided a multiplicity of speakers, content, and resources around those two topics.
