We invite you to join us in the 6 semifinals that will travel across Latin America during August and September to find the best Tech startups in the region
Past April, VISA, in association with Finnovista, launched its second edition of the program Visa’s Everywhere Initiative where they asked for startups form Latin America and the Caribbean to apply for one of the most dynamic and collaborative innovation programs of the world. The challenge in this new edition is: How can startups from Latin America and the Caribbean improve financial services transforming payment and business in the region? It is this way that the global payment organization is trying to find commercially viable solutions that can scale up through synergies with banks, acquirers and businesses from all over the region.
Past June the 22nd applications closed with very good results. More than 350 startups all along the region applied to be acknowledged as the most innovative startup of the region. Nevertheless, only 36 finalists will be selected to compete at the semifinals taking place in Bogotá (August 21), México City (August 23), Lima (August 28), Santiago (August 30), Sao Paulo (September 4) and Buenos Aires (Septiembre 6), where only 2 finalists will be chosen at each event.
Merely 12 finalists will make it to the final phase and get the opportunity to participate at a 4-day immersion program prior to the final, from September 30 to October 3. They will also gain the possibility of pitching their solutions during the great final taking place at FINNOSUMMIT Miami held October 4-5. The winner will earn a $50,000 price as well as the opportunity of collaborating with VISA to shape the future of payments and of getting to know venture capital investors and VISA´s partners ecosystem.
Additionally, a special recognition will be awarded to the the best startup with the highest potential to have an impact on financial inclusion in the region. The awarded startup may also be able to participate at the 4-day immersion program and to pitch at FINNOSUMMIT Miami.
