Latin America has emerged as a dynamic hub for technology innovation and entrepreneurship. With a rapidly growing ecosystem of tech startups, this region is attracting global attention and investment.

To learn more about this topic, the EU Tech Chamber (EUTECH) Americas Alliance organised a webinar on September 27, 2023. The topic under discussion was, “The Rise of Latin American Tech Startups”.
The webinar started off with a brief overview of the organization and a formal introduction of the panelists by our moderator, Mr. Ali Mustajab Naqvi, who is the coordinator of the Americas Alliance.

The webinar commenced with a comprehensive exploration of the fundamental drivers of growth.

Furthermore, the speakers delved into the promising prospects within various industries, notably e-commerce, fintech, edtech, and health tech. These sectors were subject to in-depth discussions, shedding light on their growth potential and evolving landscapes.
