Pitching Your Startup in the New Normal + LatAm Tech

Join the GlobalSouthTech (GST) community on Thursday, June 4, 5PM (EST) for an intimate conversation with tech leaders around the world.

As we navigate the pandemic, we are discovering that some digital experiences are more effective and cheaper than their physical equivalents, such as media, gaming and more. Startups and companies that rely on a physical footprint will have a challenging time ahead. In this discussion we will talk about how best to pivot, pitch tech startups in the current climate. And we will also discuss the current climate in Latin America.

In this discussion we will focus on:

  • Tech being propelled by a shock to the physical world, how to best position tech startups with this new opportunity?
  • Insights around how to pitch, pivot, and scale tech startups in this new normal.
