By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the IDB Lab, the innovation laboratory of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) Group, and its WeXchange platform, which promotes the growth of women entrepreneurs in technology from the region, announced the launch of a new call for applications to connect the most innovative and dynamic women entrepreneurs in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in the region with potential opportunities for access to financing.
The new edition of the WeXchange Women STEMpreneurs Competition will select 15 startups with a co-founder or a woman on their leadership team with technology at the heart of their product or service.
The entrepreneurs must be based in at least 1 country in Latin America or the Caribbean and be in the phase of raising financing from pre-Seed to Series B rounds.
The selected entrepreneurs will travel to Bogotá, Colombia, and present their companies on June 13 and 14 before key players from the Latin America and Caribbean innovation ecosystem during IDB Lab Forum 2023, the premier innovation event of the IDB Group.
The entrepreneurs will also participate in the workshops, presentations, and personalized mentoring of the Startup Academy, the Google for Startups micro-acceleration program, connecting them with technology, digital marketing, leadership, and capital raising experts.
Applications are open until March 31, 2023.
A virtual jury of leading investors from our region will study the applications, and on May 15, the entrepreneurs will be notified if they have been selected.
