LatamList – Village Capital announced the new Finance Forward acceleration program in partnership with MetLife Foundation and Moody’s. The program focuses specifically on tech startups in Latin America.
Between 10 and 12 startups will be selected to take part in the virtual program, starting in August. The program will focus on building professional skills to help entrepreneurs manage and lead their companies.
The Mexican economy suffered in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, falling by 8.5%. Village Capital believes that the new program will help restore the economy by supporting the startups who will make a difference in coming years.
“There is a growing number of startups that are working to improve the financial health of Mexico’s small businesses. They help them to manage their revenue, navigate the financial system, and prepare for the future. I am looking forward to working with these companies on the program,” said Daniel Cossío, Regional Manager for Village Capital Latin America .
The accelerator will take place between August and November via virtual workshops. Each company will have the opportunity to work closely with industry experts, investors, and partners within the ecosystem to help build their networks for future development.
The deadline for applications is June 25. For more information, visit Village Capital.
