YABT Launches International Accelerator

Washington, D.C. February 7, 2017 – The Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) is pleased to announce the launch of its International Accelerator aiming to advance startups from the Americas.. This program offers a support platform including activities to strengthen business capacities, access to knowledge, networks, capital, markets and other resources to foster the scalability of startups.     

The YABT International Accelerator is an opportunity for entrepreneurs that are developing solutions on fintech, edutech, biotechnology, health, e-commerce, cyber security, agro industry, and shared economy. With this program entrepreneurs will have access to experts with an extensive trajectory in the industry, content and resources, as well as a growing business community that will help them to consolidate, capitalize and expand their business strategies.

If you are interested in being part of the program, you can apply for partial scholarships by completing this form: www.yabt.net/aceleradora/aplicacion.html

The first phase of the program is the product/service validation, followed by a mission and international course in Israel, followed by a Demo Day during the International Expo of TIC Americas 2017 in Mexico. The third phase focused on providing customized services that will allow participants, after a period of six months, to obtain the international certification offered by the program.       

The business visit to Israel - The Startup Nation – represents one of the main and most attractive components of the program. For 16 days, the entrepreneurs will learn how Israel became a pioneer nation in innovation, where more than 60% of created companies satisfy the needs of international markets. This phase is possible thanks to the support of Israel's Agency for International Development Cooperation - MASHAV and MCTC.           

Another unique piece to complement the acceleration experience is the opportunity to participate in other international events organized by YABT, such as NexLinks Mission to Washington, D.C.
