ABOUT THIS EVENT

Volcano Innovation Summit is a global initiative, which acts as a platform to exchange future visions and experiences. Driven by the mission to incorporate Latin America to the global network of innovation, science and culture; we connect entrepreneurs, corporations, academia, investors and world leaders for crossover conversations, knowledge and inspiration. Taking advantage of Guatemala’s strategic location as a bridge between North, Central and South America, we continue pushing the boundaries for the region from Antigua Guatemala.

STARTUP AVENUE

Startup Avenue is a competition that aims to show the world the potential that Guatemala has in terms of innovation and entrepreneurship.
This competition offers a space to 50 national and international ventures to exhibit their business models in front of the Volcano Summit community and the general public. The 50 ventures will have the opportunity to perform a business pitch in front of a select panel of judges and classify to different rounds, thus giving their venture not only the opportunity to be evaluated and heard by potential investors and mentors, but also the opportunity to qualify for future rounds and win important prizes.

A: The Volcano Innovation Summit is a casual event – dress to express.
