VICO becomes part of the 500 Startups Accelerator Program
VICO is excited to announce that we became part of the latest batch from 500 Startups' Seed Accelerator based in Mexico City.
The 500 Startups’ Seed Accelerator program provides mentorship for early-stage companies based in Latin America.
After reviewing over 1,400 applications, 500 Startups LATAM started its 10th acceleration program for Startups based in Latin America in April. The latest batch is composed of founders from Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Argentina. Only 11 companies were selected to receive a US$60 thousand worth of individual investment and four months of mentorship in the Mexico City office.
500 Startups, whose headquarters are in San Fransisco, describes the program as following. “The 16-week intensive Seed Program will focus on legal, product, sales, growth, culture, fundraising, and more, in order to prepare the companies for the culminating Demo Day that will take place in Mexico City on August 7th. Batch 10’s startups will continue to put in the hard day-to-day work, with continued assistance from the 500 Startups team, investors, and more than 15 international mentors that will be visiting throughout the 4-month program.”
VICO is more than happy to become part of the 500Strong Family and to learn new skills and improve practices to help more and more students and young professionals in their search of a good VICO.
