About Us

LatAm List was born of our own frustration with the lack of available English sources on Latin American startup news.

We cover startup and entrepreneurship news coming from all of Latin America, from Brazil to Mexico, Chile to Puerto Rico, to help English speakers stay up-to-date on recent acquisitions, investments, and launches. LatAm List is also a space for founders and investors to tell their stories in their own words.

We picked a shorthand format for these articles to provide pithy updates that are meant to inform you and provide resources to help you further educate yourself on the subject. If you would like to learn more about the startups we write about, please follow the links available in each article to view alternate coverage or to visit their website.

If you have any tips, or would like to submit a story for publication, please reach out! We love to hear about the latest news and trends changing entrepreneurship in Latin America. Thank you for reading!


sophia woodSophia Wood is an entrepreneur, a writer, and an avid traveler. She fell in love with Latin America after studying abroad in Chile from 2015-2016, so she started looking for opportunities to return after graduating from Georgetown University in May 2017.

Alongside a fellow Georgetown alum, Sophia co-founded VamosA, an international training program for aspiring entrepreneurs that was based in Medellin, Colombia, in 2017. As she became immersed in the Latin American startup ecosystem, she discovered a passion for writing about Latin America’s tech and entrepreneurship revolution and sharing the stories of these inspiring founders with the world.

Sophia is currently Marketing Manager at Launchway Media, a PR and digital marketing agency focused on helping technology startups reach a US market. She is also a contributor to Latam List, a new source for Latin American tech news in English.
