We are acting today

To promote the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Latin America

We want to increasingly democratize access to e-commerce, money, and payments across Latin America so that small-scale entrepreneurs can have the same opportunities as large companies, reducing geographical distances and economic gaps, and contributing to the region's economic and social development.

The positive impact of our ecosystem will materialize with economic growth, financial inclusion, and digital transformation, which are vectors that boost our collective goal.
