I post these predictions to start the conversation for the year in Latin American tech — plus it’s a fun exercise.
In this context colored by our own national complications, Latin American tech will cement all the progress made during the fantastic 2018. I think total VC investment for this year will miss last year’s mark while the number of deals will go up.
Let’s start with regional trends
- The entrepreneurial ecosystem in Mexico will have a tough year.
- I’m afraid Argentinian and Colombian ecosystem will miss a great opportunity.
- Chile will be a great surprise growing from acceleration sweetheart to regional tech hub.
- I bet Brazil tech will take more risks this year expanding decisively to Mexico, Argentina, and Colombia.
In a nutshell, if nothing terrible happens, 2019 will feel like a long year but one where Latin American tech has a chance to thrive.
