The Chile Founder Institute, the local chapter of the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the Chile 2023 program.
After meticulous selection process and intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints, constant evaluation, and feedback from investors and mentors, just five companies were able to make it through.
Each of these Founders have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of Chile's top startup experts and investors.
And now, without further ado, we present the Alumni of the Chile program:
- LUNAPETS - a pet services marketplace that seeks to connect pet owners with verified pet sitters.
- Trippster - a platform where local hosts offer authentic experiences to visitors to the city, allowing a community to be generated.
- PatagonPrice - an online service where stores can run pricing experiments for their products and make informed decisions on defining prices.
- UNION - technological banking solution for managing shared finances of couples.
- Innovature - a company that offers access to a portfolio of sustainable businesses with transparent impact metrics and financial details.
The Chile 2023 program would not have been possible without help, because it truly takes a city to raise a startup.
Founder Institute Chile 2023 Graduation Event will take place on November 29.
