As a huge supporter and promoter of Latin America's startups, many local organizations were surprised to learn that AndesBeat inaugural event was not a ‘startup themed’ event. However, directly in line with their cultural game-changing mission, the event served as a critical foundation in terms of integrating Latin America’s media ecosystem into trends in the international media.
The event leveraged the rising media talent from a prestigious 300+ year institution of higher learning along with the timely theme of stimulating and promoting a culture of entrepreneurship within a sub-developed country.
AndesBeat is working hard at a grassroots level to increase the amount of coverage Latin American startups receives from both local and international media. By making these stories more ‘accessible and approachable’
