June 29, 2021

8:00 am To 8:50 am

Online: PDT (USA)



Event Description

A new generation of technology companies are re-shaping Latin American economies. The presence of local and global tech companies is growing rapidly, including significant B2C and B2B players across e-commerce, fintech, mobility, education, healthcare, real estate, and other sectors.

Certain Latin American tech start-ups are disrupting worldwide markets and becoming global leaders in their respective sub-sectors. Just 10 years ago, the region had only a couple of tech companies worth $1 billion. Today, 32 technology companies are valued at over $1 billion, and the number of companies reaching this valuation has multiplied 3.5 times in the last 5 years.

The Financial Times, in partnership with the Latam Tech Forum (LTF), a private forum of CEOs and founders of technology companies in Latin America, is bringing together experts to discuss why Latin America is standing out in the global technology stage, the key drivers and opportunities in the sector, and how the changing tech landscape is impacting people and local economies.
