    With little over a month left until our second Latin American edition of TNW Conference in São Paulo, it is now time to reveal the first 16 finalists of our TNW Startup Rally powered by Adyen.

    This year’s competition was open to the most talented startups interested in launching or announcing news in the Latin American market. Just like last year, leading accelerators were represented among the participants, including 21212, Aceleradora, Founder Institute, NXTP Labs, Papaya Ventures, Polo Marte, Start-Up Chile, Startup Farm and Wayra.

    Almost two hundred applicants from all over Latin America participated in a series of video pitches and interviews in order to make it to the final 16. That’s not all though; four additional finalist positions will be awarded at the TNW Conference among the startups with a Startup Table or Demo Desk in the exhibitor space on August 28 and 29.

    The Next Web Conference Latin America takes place on 28 and 29 August 2013 in São Paulo and early bird tickets are now available. You can still grab a mega discount (30% off!) by registering two tickets or more before July 30.
