Last Friday 23rd, the national final of the Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) in Peru was held, with nine startups in competition.
For just over two hours, the nine competing startups presented their proposals to a jury of recognized experience and prestige in the world of entrepreneurship, both in Peru and abroad.
For Rossemery Escobedo, project manager at USIL Ventures, this final had a high level of proposals, which positions Peruvian startups at a high level in the world.
On the other hand, Ana María Torres, director of the Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) before the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN), congratulated USIL Ventures and Investa VB -both co-organizers of the event in Peru-for the work carried out throughout the last three and a half months that the entire convocation and selection process in the country lasted.
Javier Benavides, co-founder of Investa VB, stated that this final was challenging due to the high level of proposals presented, and the professionalism of the participating teams.
