By September 11, 2018

The Peru Venture Capital Conference (PVCC), the country’s largest entrepreneurial capital event, is now underway at the Lima Convention Center. This year’s iteration has attracted more than 800 attendees, connecting all of the most important players involved in Peru’s up-and-coming startup ecosystem with local and international investors.

Organized by the Inter-American Development Bank’s Multilateral Investment Fund, the Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología, the Development Finance Corporation, and Startup Perú, the conference aims to unite the local startup community, attract interest from international investors, and promote knowledge-sharing and best practices.

The event will bring together entrepreneurs, incubators, investors, big businesses and the Peruvian government, serving as a platform for entrepreneurs to meet co-founders, investors to find interesting startups, and companies to get involved in the country’s startup ecosystem, which is on a “bid to catch up with its innovative Latam neighbors.”
