LATAM's Tech Paradox Meet Up Part I

Mar 13, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Latin American entrepreneurs face the same challenges that most entrepreneurs face, but for some there are additional hurdles that make their silicon dreams almost impossible to achieve. This has resulted in stifled innovation from a community raised with an entrepreneurial mindset and one eager to flourish if given the chance.

Hispanic entrepreneurs believed the US was their only hope and are now looking at their home countries as attractive destinations for their startups. Latin American countries are taking a page from the Silicon Valley playbook and growing fast, although sometimes breaking things, all in the name of progress. These economies are transforming quickly; investors and entrepreneurs have started the race to corner an untapped market.

Join us in our two-part meet up to learn more about the culture, the people, and the tech that drives startups in Latin America. This rare occasion brings together the right experts to give you the insight you need to find the right opportunities just south of the border!
