Tiny Rockets Flying High After EWC Venezuela

CARACAS, VENEZUELA – Tiny Rockets, a startup to help people improve their habits through technology captured first prize at the national finals of the Entrepreneurship World Cup competition held recently in Caracas.

Orlando Osorio, founder of Tiny Rockets, advances to the next round of the global competition against national winners from 184 countries.

“ Most people fail when they want to change their habits and routines, it’s tough to actually stick to new behaviors. Small bad decisions every day have a huge impact on our lives. Bad habits interrupt our life and prevent us from accomplishing our goals.” says Osorio

“Despite consuming so much of our lives, most of us likely only consider and review our habits about once or twice a year. Today, people spend on average, 12 hours on social media every week equivalent to almost two books a week or 120 km running.”

Tiny Rockets is a mobile and web app that reshapes the way users think about progress and success and give tools and strategies needed to transform habits.

Osorio will participate in an acceleration program which features virtual training and one-to-one mentoring with international mentors to prepare for the EWC Global Finals which will be held in Riyadh on November 12-14, 2019.

Tiny Rockets emerged victorious from a pool of contestants who applied – each receiving access to free virtual training services to help them take their venture to the next level.

Other finalists at EWC Venezuela included:

  • Cacay Pure Oi 
  • Risas Pendientes 
  • Unideporte 
  • Bioztronics 

Judges for the competition were:

  • Miguel León, Founder of VIPPO
  • Jorge Arredondo, Founder of Avila Burger
  • Aramis Rodríguez, Professor at IESA
  •  Edwin Ojeda, Professor at IESA

More than 102,000 contestants from 184 countries entered the Entrepreneurship World Cup. The initiative combines a broad-reaching pitch competition, aimed at ventures ranging from the idea stage to the growth stage, with a virtual accelerator program to help all participants launch, strengthen and scale their enterprises. Global Finalists will face off against one another at the Misk Global Foundation ahead of Global Entrepreneurship Week in November 2019.
