Argentina challenge is consolidated and plans to go throughout the country looking for the best startups
This Thursday, September 19, the final Argentina Challenge was held in the YPF Y-TEC auditorium in La Plata, an event that began as a venue in the city of La Plata and this year was extended to startups throughout the country.
Pablo Alemán from the team told us exclusively for TsTimes that more than 350 startups from all over the country were registered and what was positively surprising was the high level of masmas. The best 18 representatives of the main investment funds in the Region arrived yesterday.
The next year we would find ourselves doing it in Córdoba, Mendoza or Santa Fe. We want to reach 1,000 registrants and become the most important event for startups, of course, but also for funds to connect with entrepreneurs in more mature stadiums and take advantage of the event as a springboard to scale to other markets and make visible what you are doing at the country level.
