A road travelled
The main objective of Startupbootcamp Fintech’s Selection Days is to get in-depth knowledge of the best 20 Fintech projects that applied to the program in order to choose their next cohort.
The road travelled has been tough, but also fun. Thanks to this experience, Startupbootcamp Fintech and Finnovista had the opportunity, once again, to evaluate the Fintech status in several latitudes, meet with the best early-stage talent and connect with dozens of industry mentors and experts, part of Finnovista’s network.
During the 4-month recruitment process, the local team visited 10 innovation hubs in Latin America, as well as Madrid and Miami, and contacted a large number of Fintechs in the region that were invited to find out more about the program.
By the end, the team analyzed 296 startups from more than 15 different countries. Among the most representative are: Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador and Spain.
As part of the analysis the team considered factors such as market opportunity, product and business models, and above all, the fit and collaboration opportunities with the corporate partners of the program: Visa, Scotiabank, HSBC Mexico, Banregio, IGNIA, Latinia, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, EY Mexico and White & Case.
After the announcement, the 10 selected teams will have a month to prepare for the program, which will include workshops, speed dating with banks, investors and financial institutions, 1: 1 sessions with mentors from different areas such as investment, marketing, PR, legalization, human resources and team building and product development.
The addition of Rafael Hernández to the team is also great news. Rafael is joining the program as a Director. He is a key player of the Fintech ecosystem in the region with extensive experience working with startups, entrepreneurs, as well as corporate companies.
