Mana Tech concludes another successful edition of their accelerator program, advancing 14 Latam entrepreneurs closer to their goal of entering the US market. In partnership with Softex and Ingenio, we bid farewell to an exceptional group of innovators. Here’s a recap of the incredible experiences these entrepreneurs enjoyed last week.

The cohort was warmly welcomed on Sunday with a dinner at North Italia, providing an opportunity for introductions and team-building. Following this, they embarked on a week of intensive workshops led by our outstanding lineup of mentors, which included Ariana Pareja, Hanoi Morillo, Alex Robbio, Bo Megginson, and more. These experts shared their insights, equipping founders with the tools and knowledge necessary to advance their businesses. 

The founders also participated in various activities organized by Mana Tech, including networking events with our sponsors Justworks and PAG Law, a speed dating activity organized by Ines Lucena, a corporate wellness session, and their very own karaoke night. 

Seven startups advanced to the final Demo Day competition: Apura, BRISA, Learninc, Little Rebels, Luby, Smartspace, and Woof. The judges were highly impressed by these founders, ultimately selecting Woof as the winner, who was also elected as the most valuable player by their peers. 

We’re pleased to have supported these entrepreneurs in refining their pitches and navigating the US market. Interested in joining Mana Tech’s upcoming programs? Apply here to secure your spot on the waitlist and gain exclusive access to our next cohort.
