I really enjoyed reading this recent article on Lima’s startup ecosystem. It is a comprehensive take on the progress and status of our startup community. I like how it highlights the role of various actors: WAYRA, Startup Peru, PECAP, all working together and each contributing in their own way. I also like how it correctly identifies serial entrepreneurs as a key driver of the ecosystem.
The article comes from a positive angle. We are often asking “what is missing?” or “where are the problems?” and lose sight of the great progress that is being made. Let’s keep spreading the word and backing founders so that what is going on in Lima will no longer be a secret.
