Being a Founder can be a lonely journey, even more so when you move to a new country. But if you ask Miryam Lazarte, Co-Founder of LatAm Startups, it doesn’t have to be.
LatAm Startups is a Toronto-based accelerator that brings startups from Latin America to Canada to help scale these companies globally. A serial entrepreneur since childhood in Colombia, Miryam is passionate about building stronger economic ties between Canada and Latin America—and—often—overlooked market of 800 million consumers.
“If you can facilitate newcomers entering the Canadian startup ecosystem, it’s a great opportunity not only for newcomers but for Canadian companies that are looking to tap into international waters.”
Lazarte is a member of the Program Advisory Committee for Business Administration, Entrepreneurship and Small Business at Seneca College, and works closely with both Canadian and Latin American angels in pursuit of cross-border investment opportunities.
On this week’s Startup Podcast, Miryam talks about the opportunities Canadian companies can open by bringing in newcomers.
