The Jury

  • I found the experience at Claro Startup Challenge 2017 exhilarating and enlightening. The opportunity to stand in front of the judges, present Programa Valentina and get to be one of the 5 finalists, gave us insights on how to improve our communication and our solutions. Top event, Top challenge. Would love to participate again in the future.

  • Winning Unbound's global startup competition in 2017 was a blessing! Beyond the obvious business benefits, I personally won friendships I treasure. While it's no doubt a competition, it feels more like a collaboration of passionate Founders, Corporate Executives and Investors. Everyone wins from this experience.
