Don't worry, we speak : Español (Spanish), too!

Contxto – After an intense two-month selection process, Platzi, alongside a team of industry experts ,have selected 15 Latin American startups who emerged from the Platzi Demo Day back in June.

These 15 startups will now go on to a week’s worth of acceleration. On September 22, the selected startups will present their business models to investors, accelerators and companies.

The 15 selected startups were chosen on the basis of their region-specific solutions.

There, one will emerge as the winner at PlatziConf on September 26.

Just another online learning day for Platzi

Without a doubt, Platzi’s online learning ethos was of great help in conducting this event online in the midst of a pandemic.

“Platzi is committed to supporting innovative entrepreneurs in the region as part of its mission to transform Latin America into a digital economy. We are very happy to complete yet another edition of the Platzi DemoDay despite the current difficult circumstances,” said Freddy Vega, CEO of Platzi.

The 15 selected startups come from 5 different countries: Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru. Yet, all of them direct their business models to a wide spectrum of solutions that tackle regional problems.

The winning startup will travel, all expenses paid, to San Francisco to dive deep into the tech ecosystem of Silicon Valley, connect with the best in the industry, accelerate their company, and hold the Latam name up high.
