The Americas Summit 2016
A week long congregation and celebration of global Latino leaders.
New Friendships. New Beginnings.
Because of our work with the global Latino tech ecosystem, the concept for the Americas Summit 2016 came about in late 2015 among friends (Marisela Garcia of Iberus , Maica Gil of the SF International Women Entrepreneurs Forum and Jesse Martinez of the Latino Startup Alliance) as we were reflecting on the lack of a unified Americas tech presence in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many great organizations from the Americas have hosted a number of events, but we continue to lack a true collaboration across our borders and the tech community.
In 2016, the Americas Summit concept became a reality as we garnered the support of the Americas Community along with our great tech partners in the Bay Area. The seeds have been planted and we all look forward to the nurturing of a collaborative and cohesive Americas tech ecosystem in the place we call home. Un abrazo!
