Region Americas

The Latin American Entrepreneurship Conference will further develop the Closely Held Committee’s technology, disruption and innovation focus as applicable in Latin American countries. Entrepreneurship is challenging anywhere in the world, but in Latin America entrepreneurs and investors are faced with additional issues. On the other hand, the region presents additional opportunities compared to other parts of the world. After many years, the Closely Held and Growing Business Enterprise Committee will again organise a conference in Latin America to discuss legal issues specific to the region.

• Innovation in the agribusiness: can Latin America solve the Malthusian trap?
• Global entrepreneurship and growth strategies of the ’multi-latinas’ in other key traditional sectors.
• Crowdfunding in Latin America: theory and practice.
• Finance, Fintech and banking.
• How technology is helping the fight against corruption in Latin America
• Latin American startups and scale ups: what are the main legal challenges?
• Latin American unicorns: are there common features in their success stories?
• Lawtech: how are Latin American law firms dealing with new products and realities?
• Legal and financial issues in M&A/Private Equity transactions involving Latin American startups and tech companies.
• Litigation issues relating to technology companies in Latin America.
