At the heart of our mission, the LatinTech Accelerator is crafted for technology startups at the Pre-Seed to Series A stage, where Latino or Latina founders hold at least a 50% stake in ownership, control, and daily operations. This reflects our commitment to addressing the pronounced underrepresentation of Latino entrepreneurs in the tech sector.
Your journey begins over an immersive four-month period. Participants will delve into two enriching weeks on-site in Tampa, Florida, an epicenter of Latino business dynamism. An additional two weeks of virtual interaction promise expansive accessibility, ensuring participants forge deep connections within the Tampa Bay ecosystem.
In a collaborative spirit, with the robust backing of the Tampa Bay Latin Chamber of Commerce and the fervent advocacy of figures like U.S. Representative Kathy Castor, our mission remains clear: to kindle innovation, strengthen collaboration, and elevate the accomplishments of Latino tech pioneers, shaping the future of the industry.
