LATIN AMERICA

During 2018 there were signs that in Latin America you could find enough talent and projects, what’s missing is the right structure to push the companies evolution and life cycle in the right directions to achieve investors, entrepreneurs and market expectations.

In July 2018 Establishment Labs became the first Costa Rican Company to trade their common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the trading symbol “ESTA” following its initial public offering.

In September 2018, Walmart bought Cornershop, an on-demand grocery delivery service for the Latin American market for US $225 million.
