Startupbootcamp Fintech launches first Latin America accelerator program
Startupbootcamp FinTech, a leading accelerator focused on financial innovation, has announced the launch of its new fintech Mexico City program. The first Latin America-based accelerator program is aimed to support and accelerate the development of fintech startups that are based in Latin America.
“Joining our global FinTech innovation drive, Startupbootcamp’s FinTech program in Mexico City marks our expansion to the Latin American market and deepens our mission in supporting entrepreneurship and innovation beyond borders,” Andy Shannon, head of Startupbootcamp Global, stated in an official blog post.
Startupbootcamp has collaborated with Finnovista, the leading champion of fintech innovation in Latin America, in order to successfully launch the Latin America program. The program will be based in Mexico City and will attract fintech startups and entrepreneurs across Latin America to apply and be a part of the fintech movement.
Several experts and leaders in the fintech arena will be leading the program including Nektarios Liolios, CEO, and co-founder of Startupbootcamp FinTech; along with renowned Latin entrepreneurs Fermín Bueno and Andrés Fontao from Finnovista. They will play as Managing Partners of the program in Mexico City and will be supported by Eduardo Morelos as Director of the program.
“As with all our programs, we’re delighted to have the support of both local and global financial giants including VISA, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, BanRegio, EY, and White & Chase,” Shannon added.
The applications are open and the program team will be running tailored ‘FastTrack’ events in all major Latin American cities starting in March until May 2017. These events will offer interested fintech startups with a chance to meet the program’s investment team, mentors and partners.
Startupbootcamp has run successful fintech accelerator programs in Europe, Asia and US in the last four years, and has witnessed first-hand on how fintech startups have not only demonstrated fresh ways of tackling and solving financial challenges but also applying those solutions in new and emerging markets.
