¡Orale! Meet the 17 Startups in the Latest 500 Mexico City Accelerator Batch

Jess Erickson

November 14, 2013

Our compañeros down south have been busy choosing the next batch of companies for our Mexico City accelerator! Many applied, and after a rigorous interview process (which may have included a wrestling match with these two), our team was able to pick 17 companies to join the 500 family.

While our LATAM accelerator is located in Mexico City, these new companies are from all over Latin America. They hail from major cities like Buenos Aires, Bogotá, Mexico City, and Santiago de Chile.

The 17 startups in this batch will go through a 5-month program (in our trendy and kinda hipster office in La Roma, DF) where the 500 team will assist with distribution, product development, design, and fundraising. Of course, they’ll also have access to 500 Startups’ global network of more than 200 mentors.

Here’s a full list of the companies:
