Let’s be honest – did you even know we had an accelerator in Mexico City? Well, we do!…and we tend to attract companies from all over the globe. We’re excited to welcome 15 new companies who will be joining us in Mexico City from countries such as Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Spain and of course Mexico.
Fun fact: Juan Eljach, CEO of exploiter.co, is likely to be the youngest founder we have ever invested in. We interviewed him when he was only 15 years old! His company is aiming to raise awareness and teach the art of ethical hacking.
Over the next 4 months (yes, we have a slightly longer program), these founders will be working towards finding sustainable ways to bring in new clients (we love distribution) and validate their business models in order to attract more capital.
Without further ado, here are all the companies in our latest accelerator:
