- The S Factory, a pre-acceleration program for people developing startups and who identify with the female gender, will have a new generation of global entrepreneurs.
- The winners, mostly Chilean, will receive 10 million pesos (USD 15,000 approx.) to prototype their ideas.
Startups from 14 countries will be part of the new generation of technological businesses led by people who identify with the female gender. The 35 selected projects, among 176 applicants, are on an idea phase or they have less than 12 months of development.
For Sebastián Díaz, Deputy Director of Start-Up Chile, “thanks to this program, the female participation in the last year has increased from 16% to 21%. With this we increase the chances of success of the startups, since the businesses led by women survive on average twice as long as those led by men and sell an average of 30% more. Also, with more female founders in our ecosystem, we will have a better innovative capacity”.
Each of the startups will be granted 10 million pesos (USD 15,000 approx.), a one-year work visa for foreigners and they may also be part of a pre-acceleration process to develop their business ideas.
The selected startups are mostly Chilean (56%), followed closely by the rest of Latam with 25%. The remaining percentage is divided between Azerbaijan, Georgia, Jamaica, Poland, Canada and Spain. Regarding the industry, the chosen startups focus mainly on Retail, Marketplace & E-Commerce and Biotechnology & Health. In relation to the business model, 33% have a Business to Business (B2B) structure and 25% Business to Client (B2C).
The evaluation of the judges was done based on the product presented by the applicants, the market to which the startup points and the work team.
