ABOUT US

We are a non-profit organization; Connecting ventures
with our base of strategic partners that are interested
in giving life to good ideas through:

One of the most common mistakes from entrepreneurs is starting a project without the right legal structures or having them too basic that do not contemplate possible future scenarios such as: Potential investment; intellectual property protection; possible leave or incorporation of partners; decision-making processes; possible sale of the business, labor protection; etc.

We know startups usually do not invest in expert advice because of limited budgets. We believe legal advice is vital for the success of a business in all its stages and can prevent future problems, for this reason we have established a partnership with Alegalis, one of the top law firms in Guatemala through whom we support start-ups with:

  • Legal advice with benefit costs: If your project shows potential, we cover a percentage of the lawyers cost and facilitate payment methods, guaranteeing that your project starts with solid bases at the lowest cost.
  • Legal workshops in various entrepreneurship programs: Contact us to know about our next workshop or if you are interested in organizing one with us.
  • Pro-Bono program for nonprofit organizations with high social impact.

Starting with a solid legal structure can determine the success of your business. You can start your knowledge by downloading our “legal guide for start-ups” here.
Let us know your particular doubts and interests, or contact us to coordinate a first meeting (non-cost) to start with general advice for your project .

Both investors and entrepreneurs need each other and we love to make the match.

We are a channel where investors can find projects to invest in and vice versa.

If you are an entrepreneur interested in investment, tell us about your project through our form and we will transmit it, according to your profile, to the right kind of investor. If you both match, we will arrange a meeting where you will be able to explain more about your project and discuss different options of collaboration.
