We are part of Start-Up Chile again!

Start-Up Chile ― the most important accelerator in Latin America ― has trusted us once again. One year ago, we were selected to participate in TSF (generation 8), where we could develop our MVP and validate our solution in the Chilean market. This time we are part of the Seed programme (generation 22), where we expect to grow as a company and scale sales. This programme attracts world-class entrepreneurs to do business in Chile. It accommodates early-stage entrepreneurs who will strengthen the enterprise environment, support the culture of innovation in Chile and connect with Latam to grow from Chile to the world.

We made it!: WriteBetter reached the pitch finale of the eighth generation of The S factory

After an intense period of work, all our efforts and impact generated in the TEFL community in Chile were acknowledged: we were selected to present in the final stage of the programme (pitch finale).

Only nine start-ups were selected (out of 14), all of them founded by female entrepreneurs. In only three minutes, we had to explain the value proposition of WriteBetter, why we are different from our competitors, and all the progress we have made during this period. Important agents of the entrepreneurial ecosystem were present to get to know the potential of the selected start-ups of this competition.

It was an amazing experience for us as entrepreneurs!

Start-up Chile Showcase day: we showed our amazing solution and were selected to present in the pitch finale!

Today was a great day for WriteBetter, as we were able to show our product to the attendees at the Showcase day organised by Start-up Chile and make them interact with the software. After the pitch session, all the start-ups participating in The S Factory had the chance to show their incredible and innovative solutions to the audience (see the picture below). When this was happening, members of the Start-up Chile staff and external judges were going around to test the different technological solutions proposed by the participants. This was an important part of the activity, since they decided who went to pitch finale. Fortunately, our work amazed the judges and we were one of the start-ups selected to go to the second round.

WriteBetter was one of the 14 start-ups selected to participate in The S Factory: a Chilean pre-acceleration programme for female founders

Among 185 applicants from all over the world, WriteBetter was one of the start-ups that will receive $15,000 USD to develop its project and validate it in the Chilean market. The programme has a duration of 4 months in which various activities will be carried out to promote the development of the start-up, including weekly lessons related to economic and business issues, pitch trainings, mentoring with expert mentors in the education industry, and so on.

The S Factory is a pre-acceleration programme especially designed for female entrepreneurs in the technological field. The selected startups are mostly Chilean (50%), 15% from other Latin American countries and 35% from the rest of the world. As for the industries, the selected startups are mainly focused on IT Software and Biotechnology and Health. 46% have a Business to Business (B2B) business model and 39% have a Business to Client (B2C) model. WriteBetter has both B2B and B2C business models and belongs to EdTech (technology in education).

Our dream is to grow in this pre-acceleration programme supported by Start-up Chile (Corfo). We hope to revolutionize the education industry, and change the paradigm of English teaching in Chile and around the world.
