Our LTNtech initiative supports Latin entrepreneurs & leaders with regular programming, tailored resources, mentorship, & community designed to help them embrace their unique strengths & break down the barriers they face.
In 2021, venture capital investors funneled $150 billion to startups but only 2.1% of those funds were distributed to Latin founders. Despite the rapid growth of Latin entrepreneurship, there is a vast and growing funding gap.
This event activates our community of early stage startups, corporate partners, venture capitalists and the wider tech ecosystem. As a collective we aim to deepen the pool of funds that Latin founders can access.
