Alfredo Osorio and Ash Maurya (international thought leaders behind BOMBAcamp), are proud to announce that the applications are now open for the November 2012 version of its Program BOMBA_5 WEEKS.
BOMBAcamp was founded to help entrepreneurs transform their ideas into innovative and successful startups.
Alfredo Osorio (Founder & CEO of BOMBAcamp & Co-Founder of Patagon.com) and Ash Maurya (Author of Running Lean, Lean Startup expert and worldwide mentor of entrepreneurs) are closely involved with the day-to-day operations and co-lead the mentor program for startup founders and program participants.
The only requirement that we ask is to have the soul of an entrepreneur. You can keep your day job (for now), and come on the afternoon and in the weekends. You can apply for the program with or without a team and/or idea.
We all know how disappointing it is: You buy a ticket for an event you are totally crazy about, and THE day is almost there, but then all of a sudden something changes and you end up not being able to go. Now you’re stuck with the ticket you purchased and cannot get your money back.
That’s a real bummer!
But I have good news for you: Fanatickus is a new platform with which everything around seeking and offering tickets becomes so much easier. And the best thing is, you won’t believe it: It is totally free!!!
Fanatickus was founded by a group of young Chilean entrepreneurs who wanted to create a space for people to sell and buy tickets to all kinds of events (e.g. family, sports or musical events) last minute. Ricardo Martínez, one of the creators, realized the necessity of connecting all those many event fanatics, because it happens way too often that we don’t know what to do with the tickets we end up not using or how we can purchase tickets a few minutes before an event starts.
AndesBeat will host new world change-makers under the radar of old world knowledge at an upcoming event in Santiago, Chile which will showcase the emerging startup and entrepreneurship scene in Chile.
Santiago, Chile – AndesBeat, Latin America’s first English language media publication dedicated to ‘covering the uncovered’ stories in Latin America’s emerging startup scene, announced today that in their inaugural event they will host a group of students from the Globalist (the quarterly international global affairs publication of Yale University).
Many local organizations were surprised to learn that AndesBeat inaugural event was not a ‘startup themed’ event. However, directly in line with their cultural game-changing mission, the event serves as a critical foundation in terms of integrating Latin America’s media ecosystem into trends in the international media. The event will leverage the rising media talent from a prestigious 300+ year institution of higher learning along with the timely theme of stimulating and promoting a culture of entrepreneurship within a sub-developed country. AndesBeat is working hard at a grassroots level to increase the amount of coverage Latin American startups receives from local and international media. By making these stories more ‘accessible and approachable’ to the media, they also seek to educate the everyday citizen in Latin America about the entrepreneurship and startup world.
Originally envisioned as an incubator for artists and musicians, Valparaiso based Sonic Pollen is Chile’sfirst social network dedicated to the administration of music shows and booking musicians.
Sonic Pollen could be considered the Latin American version of Gig Maven which over the course of 3 years reached nearly 2 million registered users and 20,000 venues. It was acquired by Reverb Nation in August 2011.
On February 5, 2012, Sonic Pollen successfully raised their first round of funding for $20,000 USD, from FONDART. They are currently working on tweaking their alpha version and integrating feedback from beta users (It launched today)!!!
Administered by the Ministry of Education, FONDART (Development Fund for Culture), is a source of state funding, which aims to contribute to the development of arts and culture of Chile.
