TNW: 10 Latin American startups to look out for in 2013

As a new year begins, TNW refresh its list of the most promising Latin American startups. While they are still in their first years of existence, most of them have graduated from one of the region’s leading accelerators, which helped them get funding from international investors to finance their growth.

Veduca was mentioned, together with descomplica. See a piece of the article below.

You can see the full list of startups here.

Descomplica

Brazilian e-learning startup Descomplica has recently closed an investment round from Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures, Brazil-focused Valor Capital Group and EL Area, 500 Startups, and Palo Alto-based Social+Capital Partnership.

In other words, it is well placed to surf on the online education boom in Latin America, and more specifically in Brazil, where it helps students prepare for major entrance examinations.

Runner-up: Veduca, which brings MOOCs from leading US universities to Brazil with Portuguese subtitles, and recently closed a round led by Mountain do Brasil, with participation from 500 Startups.
