Less than one week ago we published a post about Floqq, Latin America’s largest online Spanish language course catalog. And 3 weeks ago for our ‘AndesBeat Start-Up Chile Demo Day Picks‘, we identified Floqq as 1 of the 2 startups that were replicating a proven business model- referring to them as the ‘Udemy of South America’.
So today, it comes as no surprise to us that they were selected for 500 Startups accelerator, whoop! whoop! Congratulations!
Floqq (via Startup Chile) is the second company selected from Chile to be accepted to 500 startups. The first company selected was Chilean owned and founded startup, Welcu (June 2011). Welcu provides high end online event management & ticketing. With the support of 500 startups Welcu has expanded their offices to Colombia, Brazil and Argentina.
