Announcing 500 Startups Latin America Batch Nine!

500 Startups is thrilled to announce our latest batch from our Latin America Seed Program!

Based out of Mexico City this new batch consists of founders from all over Latin America; with companies from Chile (1 company), Colombia (3 companies), Mexico (5 companies), and Peru (2 companies). The 4-month intensive Seed Program will focus on legal, product, sales/all things growth, culture, fundraising, and more, which prepares the companies for the culminating Demo Days taking place in Mexico City and Bogota November 15th and the 22nd. Companies will continue to put in the hard day to day work with the local 500 team, investors, and more then 15 international mentors that will be visiting us throughout the 16 week program.

We’re excited to continue our vision of supporting founders in their missions to create successful companies at scale, and to ultimately build thriving global ecosystems with this batch.

 

Here are the companies from Latin America Batch 9:
