What companies are set to disrupt the traditional Nearshore sourcing landscape? Who are the upstarts that are hitting the market hard with solid business models and paradigm-shifting services? Two months ago, we decided to find out.
Nearshore Americas presents the results of our first annual Red Hot Startups program, focused on identifying the six most innovative and well-managed startups across Latin America, the Caribbean and Canada.
We looked for companies that have compelling features in the areas of global sourcing, software design, IT innovation, e-commerce or mobile/web applications and services. But in today’s competitive market landscape, that’s not enough. Our selection team chose startups that have a value proposition not just in benefits for their clients, but in forward-looking business ideas with true commercial promise.
The Nearshore is traditionally not well known for innovative business concepts, especially in software and services. But that is changing fast as we’ve seen talent rising up across the region to create, innovate and leverage the power of the digital economy. To put it plainly – we are impressed.
