Austin, TX: MediaTech Ventures and ProColombia partner to foster Colombian startups looking to learn about, get connected to, and expand into the U.S. market. The 12-week program launched in November 2020 with twenty Colombian startups as the first cohort.
“We’ve done quite a bit with ProColombia over the years to support innovation and entrepreneurship in central Texas and beyond. We’ve always appreciated their mission to help the Colombian startup community connect with the world. Combining our curriculum with their mission was an ideal next step in growing our partnership while providing more value to the communities in which we serve.”John Zozzaro, President, MediaTech Ventures
