What is the importance of having a program like Accelerator for a company like yours?

"The importance of having programs like VTEX Accelerator is the exposure it provides you with. We are a startup based in Barcelona and we are small in comparison with other tech companies. Having ecommerces is very popular in LATAM, and it’s growing in Europe as well. So, the program is giving us a push to have more exposure in different markets."

Christina Baeza Carroza

Business Development Executive fro Spain and LATAM - PhotoSlurp

“Being part of VTEX Accelerator Program greatly accelerates the scaling in Latin America through a very important ecosystem, that of the best company in the region through also belonging to the marketplace ecosystem.”

Benjamin Santa Maria

Co-founder & CEO - Reversso

“The reality is that this is very important, basically because the use of programs focused on technology helps us to boost all the technology with the brands, to make communication processes more efficient and to work thoroughly on the personalization of the user experience. So, the fact that technology today is natively integrated with VTEX allows and accelerates the efficiency of the processes internally for each of the brands and above. For me, VTEX Accelerator is pure innovation. It's to work day by day in upgrading technology and helping the companies to boost economic benefits in a very short time.”

Natalia Borrazás

Email & Marketing Automation Expert - MailUp

"For us, it was important to participate in the Accelerator program because one of our main business priorities is expanding ecommerce market, and, with VTEX Accelerator, we got the possibility to enter the Brazilian market very easily. That was really great for us since they have a lot of interesting partners and clients. This way, we had an entry to the VTEX Ecosystem by integrating in one place only, without the need to do it in different directions."

Sergey Budyakov

CEO - Usedesk

"Since we are a social commerce solution, it is very important for us to be part of this ecosystem. Here, we can partner with other companies, showcase our product, learn from them and from their experience. VTEX Accelerator is providing us with very good opportunities to show our product and enhance our presence in the market."
