CASE STUDY - Claro Startup Showcase

Uncovering the most promising startups for Claro


Latin American telecom giant Claro and Unbound worked together to identify the best companies in e-commerce, AI, education, entertainment, among other relevant verticals based in the Americas.

After receiving over four dozen applications, 15 companies were invited to participate in a competition during Unbound Miami, where they took the stage to pitch in front of a live audience and judges representing Claro as well as South Florida’s tech ecosystem. On this day, five winners were chosen.

The winners then travelled to Guatemala to visit Claro’s Central American HQ, where they met senior managers from the company’s various business groups, and participated in a final pitch competition in front of representatives from the local ecosystem and members of the press.
