This is the second time in 2019 that Google and The Venture City have empowered startups in Miami.
The Venture City has summoned major investors from Europe, the United States and Latin America to its Miami campus.
The city of Miami is running and consolidating as the tech capital of Google and The Venture City to make the final part of the Launchpad Accelerator program, which began in Mexico, passed through Argentina and ends up connecting with key investors in Miami.
The Venture City has summoned major investors from Europe, the United States and Latin America to its Miami campus as an added benefit to the startups of both programs. Google’s nine companies are across the week with ten of The Venture City’s Growth Acceleration program companies to share experiences, receive training, and demonstrate the big moment startups live.
Google Launchpad Accelerator brings companies from Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and El Salvador to Miami. The selected companies are 1,2,3 Insurance, Al Turing, Apli, DevF, Hugo, Jetty, Jsto, Odd Industries and TransparentBusiness. On the other hand, the companies of The Venture City program participating in the bootcamp together with Google will be Qempo, Cashier, ComigoSaude, Digital Innovation One, TheFastMind, eMasters, Alba, 1Doc3, Stayfilm and Erudit. These companies represent the talent, diversity and richness of the innovative ecosystem of Latin America, concentrated in The Venture City.
Laura González-Estéfani, CEO and founder of The Venture City, has emphasized that these days “consolidate Miami as an epicenter of innovation and entrepreneurship, which convenes companies that think without borders”, in addition the CEO has added that she thinks “that talent is distributed around the world, not so opportunities”.
For his part, Paco Solsona, manager of Google Developers, has stated that “making this program for all countries in the region feels like a dream come true, as it provides the opportunity to draw attention to the great work that Latin American entrepreneurs and developers are doing”.
This is the second time in 2019 that Google and The Venture City have powered startups in Miami, following last March’s successful Launchpad Start, a week-long version that was also held in Miami. Gathering the talent of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Miami diversifies the American tech ecosystem and keeps investors and key players up to date on the different challenges that the founders in this sector are facing
