About us

Startups must be strategic about scaling from a local region to any number of international markets. “Startupseurolatinas” is a multi-stakeholder initiative to foster the EU-LATAM entrepreneurial ecosystem by mapping European and Latin American Startups growing their businesses across the pond. A Eurolatina startup operates in Europe and/or LATAM, has already an international footprint or has plans to go global.

Eurolatinas is a showcase online resource for information about European and Latin American Startups that run their business in one or both continents and that already have an international presence or have plans to go global.

Startupseurolatinas project works to identify and connect European startups working in Latin America, and Latin American startups that are working in Europe. It is a research project, but also works to provide a platform for companies that are working cross-nationally, to connect them with investors and partners.

Our goal is to close the gap between Europe and LATAM startups to boost the investor ecosystem, establish a friendlier environment for Eurolatinas startups and to highlight the opportunities Eurolatinas bring out.

Eurolatinas Community is open to:

  • Startups funded in Europe growing beyond the frontiers of their community or country with users, clients, business locations etc., in LATAM.
  • Startups funded in LATAM growing beyond the frontiers of their community or country with users, clients, business locations etc., in Europe
  • Track record European & LATAM startups with a strong shot at going global

 

Why join Eurolatinas:

  • This mapping is critical to the creation of a truly ecosystem of founders mastering intercontinental startups growth, “long-distance” investors, corporates seeking innovation from startups in Europe and LATAM, and professionals who can help the next generation of startups to cross the Atlantic.
  • Access to financing from European and Latin American Investors
  • Soft-landing in European and LATAM markets providing the knowledge necessary to navigate local markets

Calling all Eurolatinas startups! Are you a European startup planning to expand to LATAM? Are you a LATAM startup planning to expand to Europe? Then, you are a Eurolatina! Join us!
