We are having so much fun at Start-Up Chile! As you heard, last week we hosted our DemoDay in the midst of DemoBattles, where Start-Up Chile startups battled against AngelHack talent. The press coverage began with outlets like El Otro Mate, Nación.cl, Extend, Pulso, TransMedia, Mundo En Línea, Educamericas, City and Diario Estrategia, who made sure to let everyone know they were invited to the event.
On Thursday, Nov 21st, lights went ON and there they were: 15 startups once again on stage, facing the questions of great judges. Newspapers La Hora, La Cuarta, and MiPymeInnova followed the event closely, while LaTercera, LUN, and Estrategia told the whole country that Material Mix won the DemoDay! Our dear Allison Carmen gets to travel to Silicon Valley and keep meeting investors!
On Sunday, Start-Up Chile talent got the chance to battle against AngelHack! And we are proud to let you know that the startup BoxFox was chose by the judges as the very best startup of the whole competition. Chris Palmer will join the EMERGE Americas Conference in May! Newspapers Pulso Social, La Nación and Pulso are spreading the word.
But life goes on, and neither the DemoDay nor DemoBattles stopped the Start-Up Chile teams from creating that WOW effect in the press. Pulso Social published about the next big things in medical startups. Check out the Start-Up Chile projects included in their piece!
