500 Startups is excited to announce the latest batch from our Seed Accelerator based in Mexico City. The Mexico City program focuses on providing mentorship and guidance to foster fast-paced growth for Spanish-speaking, early-stage companies based in Latin America.

For this batch, our team assessed 1706 applications to participate in the acceleration program. Our final group of startups batch consists of founders from all over Latin America, including five companies from Mexico, one company from Chile, two companies from Colombia, and one company from Peru. The nine startups began the accelerator activities on November 25th at 500’s office in Mexico City.

Throughout the four-month program, founders will put in hard work to prepare for Demo Day in March of 2020 in Mexico City. With continued assistance from the 500 Startups team, investors, and more than 15 international mentors, the 16-week intensive seed program focuses on legal, product, sales, growth, culture and much more.
