Startupbootcamp FinTech Mexico City, which is organized and run by Finnovista, celebrated the closure of its third batch during Demo Day on 30th January.
The 10 Latin American startups of the generation showcased their innovation story and accomplishments during their acceleration progress in front of the FinTech industry. In total, 44 strategic alliances were finalized, which confirms the immeasurable value that these entrepreneurs, who are already boosting their projects along with the key players of the industry, are bringing to the industry.
During the 3 months of acceleration, the startup founders and their teams participated in more than 14 keynotes and 355 individual sessions. The entrepreneurs heeding the call to transform the FinTech industry in Latin America in the following years benefited from mentor sessions with more than 200 experts, Startupbootcamp’s local and Finnovista global team, and one-to-one meetings with the corporate partners of the program: Visa, Scotiabank, HSBC Mexico, Banregio, IGNIA, LATINIA, Fiinlab powered by Gentera, EY Mexico, and White & Case.
