Who is it for?

Apply if
You are the founder of a tech company in LatAm in the growth stage.
Your company is about to:
— Raise a late seed (+$2.5M) or a series A round
— Scale to new markets or countries
— Launch a new product
— Scale operations and team
You have previous early startup experience, a product or growth background, strong technical knowledge, and/or deep industry expertise that you can use to contribute to the community.
Reconsider if
You are a founder but your company hasn't reached product-market fit or isn't ready to scale yet. In this case, giving it some time or applying to join the Explore Fellowship might be a better path.
You are expecting quick infallible hacks to success. We don’t believe in those.
You are not willing to put in at least a couple of hours per week. In this program, you get what you give!
You’re kinda mean. That’s no good.
