Mana Tech successfully wraps up another iteration of its accelerator program. The team welcomed 11 international startups from various corners of the world, spanning Argentina, Colombia and Turkey. This cohort was particularly exceptional, bringing together outstanding talent to showcase their ventures in Miami during the tech industry’s busiest month.

As customary, Mana Tech organized a welcome dinner on Sunday, providing founders the opportunity to meet face-to-face for the first time and familiarize themselves with our team and objectives. The in-person segment of the program started on Monday, with these innovators engaging in mentorship sessions and fine-tuning their pitching abilities. Tuesday featured workshops throughout the day, followed by an evening networking event in collaboration with PAG Law. This gathering facilitated connections between founders and legal professionals eager to support international startups entering the US market. 

On Wednesday and Thursday, founders took advantage of the chance to attend tech events taking place in Miami during Tech Month. These events not only offered valuable content but also allowed founders to connect and learn more about the Miami Tech ecosystem. 

Finally, on Friday, founders participated in a speed dating activity with ten judges tasked with selecting the top seven startups to pitch at Demo Day. Among the finalists were Botano, Chill It, Nideport, Parsed, Propy Keys, Teramot, and Unergy. These entrepreneurs presented their pitches to a distinguished panel of judges, including Brad Bowery, Ted Coughlin, Valerie Derome, Ariel Jaduszliwer, Ines Lucena and Valentina Terranova. While the decision was challenging, Chill It emerged as the winner! Additionally, Unergy received the People’s Choice Award for Most Valuable Fellow Worker. 

A big shout out to the remaining startups for their invaluable contributions: Cux, MentorU, Nous Latam, and Pala Blockchain.
