COVID-19 presented us with the challenge of providing a 100% digital program that would maintain the quality and benefits that our face-to-face program provides, and we succeeded. With this, we had the opportunity for more startups from outside of Mexico to participate in our program without the complications of having to move to Mexico City. The diversity and commitment of this year's finalist startups will be treasured forever, stated the Managing Director, Camila Lecaros.
37 startups from around the world participated in the 2020 MassChallenge Mexico accelerator. Due to COVID-19 the program was held entirely online; this format made it possible for more startups from Latin America to actively participate in the accelerator and get access to the vital resources, intentional partnerships, and community they need to grow.
