On Thursday, September 6th, NXTP Labs of Argentina and 21212 Digital Accelerator of Brazil will take 15 startups to Silicon Valley to show their stuff. The event, titled Latam Invasion to Silicon Valley, will be the first Demo Day for the accelerators in the U.S.-based technology hub.
NXTP and 21212 hope to show off the products their startups have been working on to the Silicon Valley entrepreneurial community as well as investors and journalists interested in finding out about business opportunities surrounding technology in Latin America.
NXTP Labs co-founder Gonzalo Costa assured that the accelerator will present only the best of its startup catalog. He explained, “These are the startups with the highest profiles and the most global potential in Silicon Valley, one of our key markets. We want to demonstrate the strength and execution abilities of Latin American startups. We’ve already garnered attention in the Latin American playing field, and now, we aspire for our accelerated businesses to get on the map of angel investors, VCs and other funding sources in Silicon Valley.”
21212 partner Frederico Lacerda further stated, “A Latin American Demo Day in San Francisco will be a great opportunity for our startups to present their products and business models to leading local investors. We are looking forward to partnering with NXTP Labs to show the quality of Latin American tech entrepreneurs.”
